Hi all! Haven't been around the site too much lately-been busy digging outside and then nursing my aching body [sleepy] But anyway, I've got my garden prepared and got a little overzealous and tried my luck at planting a couple of seeds today. I tried some cabbage, kale, beets, and 2 types of lettuce. Don't know if any of them will make it-now they're forcasting frost for tomorrow night. I then read that cabbage does better as transplants, which I have some seedlings started inside. So I'm wondering how soon it is safe to begin to harden off transplants. I read in previous posts no sooner than 2 sets of true leaves, but what is ideal and what is most likely to have decent results? Thanks for the advice!

Wow! Thanks Mike! That Almanac site is fantastic! Has info about just about everything I'm growing-looks like my peas are late, cabbage is early to seed, but not too early to transplant, if only the transplants were more than 2 starter leaves. Lamp broke today too. Actually, the lamp itself is fine, but the rabbit ate 1/2way through the wire, right near the plug. Don't know how that thing hasn't gotten nuked yet, cwazy wabbit. hopefully dh will be able to fix it tomorrow. Anyway, thanks for the help!
