Q.How Can I Fix My Rookie Mistake?

Zone Montreal, Canada | Anonymous added on April 3, 2022 | Answered

I’m a beginner gardener and started my cucumber and zucchini seedlings a few weeks too early! It allowed me to make sure I had the perfect conditions for germination, but I feel bad wasting the plants since they are growing beautifully. Would pinching my seedlings once I have at least 4 real leaves buy me some time? Thank you very much.

If they are growing just fine and have enough light, I would keep doing what you are doing and let them grow. If they start getting leggy you can pinch them back. (or in the case of zucchini the article below says to add soil)
