Planting Now?

It's such an early spring and I want to take advantage of the good weather but am nervous that I'm jumping the gun. I'm half an hour south of Milwaukee and the daytime/nighttime temps look to be in the 70s/50s.

Is anybody direct seeding any warm-weather veggies yet (cucumbers, squash, zucchini)? I'm going to keep the tomato plants inside until nighttime temps are 60 though. I probably also won't direct seed any melons until then either. But I'm considering cucumbers and squash...

I'm waiting. But like you, I have no idea if it's the right thing or not. I know how often they just sit there below 60. It's a tough call, especially when the days are SO warm. Good luck!
