Sprouted and greening

The Jumbo Banana Squash seeds I dried by the fireplace last fall were in a paper bag that tore open.  I casually planted them during a heatwave while tossing out over 300 other plants last week. Reusing the containers and dirt (not organic) and sprinkled some on top of dirt in a few house plant containers. I think I did fine drying these. And with the hot July heat and rainfall only, they are doing well for their first week of sprouting and greening outside under the shade of a clipped wisteria.
Each plant can yeild over 75+ pounds of squash. And they need little water.
