|Hi I planted cucumber, squash, melons and bean seeds a little over a month ago. No germination on any of them so far, but we have had temps as low as 32 and some temps have been as high as 80 with everything in between. I'm wondering if I should replant the seeds or just wait and see if they germinate. I didn't know if they still would with the colder temps as I've never directly down them so early.|

|I would wait until this weekends cold weather passes and reseed.
They should have sprouted within a week to ten days.

| with Bill. I would reolant. The seeds you listed are some of the fastest to germinate.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.

|It could be pests or birds are your seeds, and sprouts before you got to notice them! That's happened to me countless times!
One time I caught a slug carrying my sprout away in the early morning. This is not a joke.
Birds have dug up and ate my seeds sowed in the backyard.
It happens! Good luck. Let us know what happens when you try again in a week!

|At my house, I filled containers with garden soil, planted...
the beans came up in like 2 days!
not so good... Like a month later and I'm still waiting on some...
soil's too cold...
planted sweet corn... and that took an amazingly long time to come up... in comparison to usual...
it's early, some of that stuff needs the soil to warm up...
my soil in above the ground containers should have warmed up enough... but... I didn't wait for that to happen...
so... if you are planting directly in the garden?
might still be a little too early.

|Soil temperatures to germinate the seeds mentioned is between 70 - 80 degrees.
