Seedlings: Zucchini and Butternut Squash

Today, I moved the zucchini and butternut seedlings into larger containers. The initial plantings have been great, and I am eager to move these into the garden in a few weeks. The nighttime temperatures still drop down into the 40's so I think it is too soon to move them outside yet, but next week I will take them out from under the 24-hour lamps and prep them for the move. I have had some good zucchini in the past, but I have never been successful with winter squash. Hopefully the strong seedling are a signal that this will be a great year for both types of squash!
