I took a chance with all the warm weather we've been having and soaked some cucumber seeds for 2 days, knowing the risk of March weather possibilities. Now the forecast is saying possible freeze this Sunday. Since I've soaked the seeds for 2 days, what should I do now? Can I go ahead and plant them and let them ride out the weather till it warms up? HELP!

I'm in the same boat...and I planted mine in small starter containers and will move them inside now for a few days until the temps go back up. Don't waste your time planting them in the ground until the soil warms again ...but you do need to plant them in something or lose them.

Yes, start Cucumber (Cucumis sativus cvs.) seeds indoors, in containers. Grow them up as small seedlings in a sunny window, for a later transplant.
