done something wrong. I tried planting squash, cucumbers, and even some
watermelon seeds, but almost nothing sprouted - only the zucchinis (but
not the yellow squash)."

Buy a soil thermometer. When your soil is under 70 degrees, squash isn't likely to germinate. For cucumber, the magic number is 60 degrees.
