hey this is my first post on this site.

today i planted about 5 seeds across my fence up the hill behind my house (Lots of sunlight) and i just covered the seeds up and mixed the soil around the plantsite

the hill has lots of weed and stuff but im pretty sure i removed the weeds near it and hopefully i didnt do anything wrong

currently 3 hours later i watered up the hill

is there anything i should have done?? hopefully my cucumbers grow beautifully

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.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

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. Smiling Cucumbers, squash and melons are usually the very last thing to go into the garden.
