Summer squash wants warm soil -- at least 65°F -- to grow well.
Starting it inside and then transplanting it when the soil is warm
enough will get you to harvest sooner than waiting to plant seeds
directly in the ground. No special care is needed when transplanting.
Don't plant them inside too soon. They need their tap root to go down into
the ground, not round and round your starting pot. I would give them a
couple of weeks, and then put them into the ground. I made that mistake on
watermelons and had to water them every other day.
Two weeks earleir harvest. Plant them in a large pot, and put them
outside no more than three weeks after seeding, it goes very fast. It
does not sulk like melons or cukes if you disturb the root, though it
would be best to leave it alone as much as possible.
