I bought my little tomatoes last week from the local
green house, They are in their little pots in my garage
near a window getting pampered while I wait for the
cold night to relent.
The weather service says the nights will be ~45 F for
at least the next week. Is it okay to put my plants outside
for the night yet?
I plan to put them up against the house to keep them warmer.
I have to watch the weather service carefully, as we can
still have freezing nights.
I understand frost can still be possible if it is colder at the ground
than the air above it where temperature is measured.
I bought my tomatoes small and transplanted them into bigger containers.
They were kept in a window in the house and brought outside, slowly into
more and more sun, and brought in at night until overnight temps
exceeded 50. A surprise cold night, with little wind, invites frost.
Planted outside in containers May 15 and noticed marble sized tomato
45F is a little cold, but against the house should
help if that wall gets sunshine in the afternoon/evening.
yeah, still here too, i think we're getting plants today.
the forecast here looks ok for the next week too. just
hope the frosts are done, it's not fun coming up with
covers at the last instant.
