where are you?
If in the south, it may be too late. Once this hot, it will kill the plant before it can establish good root structure. The cool spring is ideal for growing baby plants, because the sun will nt burn them while the roots are working so hard to grow.
If you are up north, you may have a chance. I would keep them watered daily & not leave them i direct sunlight for more than 4 hours. You can give it a try, have done it before with pumpkins, squash & some other hardy vegetables.
Your best bet is to buy the plants already grown at your garden center, put them in large pots & water them daily. This way, if they begin to burn from the heat....you can move them into shadier location until they are better established to tolerate the heat. Baby plants do not tolerate heat too well.....
If you have to do seeds, then plant them indoors first & let them grow a but before throwing them in a container outside.
