That would be great if I had a back hoe.And some stumps.

Just the shock free transplanting only requires digging down 5" or so. Might need a mini-hoe!

The stumps are for when the plants get bigger. I used a shovel, dug down about 1 foot.

I can't wait to try this! Wilt is always a problem when I'm planting my second season of warm weather crops in Houston.

Yesterday in my garden it was 109 degrees F and none of the cukes transplanted this way wilted at all, even though they were in full sunlight.
