Help!! My plants got mixed up!!

I had a tray of zucchini, straightneck, pumpkin, and cucumbers get blown off my deck in a windgust. I had them in peat pots, set in rows, with the first pot marked to identify what each row was. They're all mixed up, and honestly, they all look pretty much the same to me. Is there any way to identify them?

I think I've found and seperated six of the cucumbers. Can I just plant the pumpkin and squash in a way that will suit both plants, and wait to find out what they are when the start producing?

Oh my.

At least they survived their experience and didn't break off.

Yes the pumpkins and squash can be planted and left to reveal their nature in due time. It might waste a little space compared to what the bush squashes would need if you knew which ones they were, but the basic needs of the plants are essentially the same.

Good luck.
