Good Morning! [wayey]
I've posted a question for noneofyourbusiness but I guess he hasn't been on the forum lately. These cool temperatures and the cold wind is keeping from hardening off my tomatoes, peppers, etc. Will they be okay outside already? Has anyone from Ontario been leaving their plants out? Please help.
Christina

Hey Christina, being from Oz i'm probably the least likely person to help you out, but you sound desperate enough to give me a ear. Have you any experience with a coldframe? Might be just what you need. Here's a link of how to:

Or google "build cold frame" for lots more info.

Hi ChristinaC,
I planted my tomatoes outside yesterday (MON)I hope/think they will be ok. I give a lot of plants away to friends who say they don't wont them until after the long weekend.They have been in a coldframe (A greenhouse with no heat)for a few weeks now.So they will be a little harder then yours that are inside the house.I too live in Ontario.
