Transplanting seedlings should be undertaken with care, to minimize shock to the plant.
It's best if soil is moist, but not too wet, before planting. Having the area covered with mulch for the days or weeks before planting will help.
If water is limited, just water immediately around the plant after transplanting, and cover with a thick mulch except for a few centimeters (an inch or so) around the plant.
Grow directly in place - see How to raise seedlings #Sowing directly vs sowing in containers. This depends on climate, how much space is available, and whether growing beds are ready.
