|Hi and welcome to NGA!
Sounds like you did an awesome job! Hopefully squirrels & such won't dig up the seeds and eat them ... sometimes it's better to start seed indoors in pots and plant out the seedlings if you have a lot of seed loving critters around.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

How warm is the soil? The cucumber seeds will rot if the soil is below 65F. Don't worry about it - I have had to plant more than once more than once. Cucumbers, squash and melons are usually the very last thing to go into the garden.
