|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.

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.
