Hello everyone. I am growing some cucumber plants and two of them started developing some strange problem. They are wilting and dying. I'm not sure if it's bacterial wilt or what. There are no signs of pests or anything and I just started putting them outside maybe 10 days ago. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Welcome!

If your weather has been anything like mine, they froze to death.

The temps have been in the mid 40s at the coldest since I've had them outside. It isn't optimal but I thought they could handle it. Is that too cold for them?

Yes, especially in a pot. Keep the temps above 55 or 60. Well watered plants withstand cold better than dry ones. Your soil looks dry.

Okay, I brought them in. I also have zucchini, tomatoes, and potatoes outside but they look like they're doin well. Do you think I should bring those in at night too? Thanks for the help.

Sorry, but you cucumbers are dead. You will have to start over.

The potatoes will be fine but I don't know how well the rest will do. I cover mine with a bucket on cold nights.
