Should I plant my vine crops directly in the ground?

Tips for Planting Vine Crops

The squash family consists of many plants including the melons, cucumbers, pumpkins and squashes. While each vegetable is different, the vegetable seeds generally like the same culture.

This crop does not like being transplanted. You should sow these vegetable seeds directly into the ground in which they will remain throughout the season. Most vine crops do well when planted in mounds. The mounds can be one to two feet in diameter – although you should allow more room for larger squashes and pumpkins.
