Seedlings: Hardening Off

This year has been the best year of hardening off yet.
No casualties, no singed leaves, perfection.
Except, spring just won’t fully arrive!
Last night we were in the 30’s as well as the night before.
I was so worried about the tomatoes and cucumbers
I chose to bring them inside the house
as I was concerned even the garage wouldn't be warm enough.
Here’s hoping I can begin planting my annuals this weekend.
My bottle seedlings (right) did quite well!

The tomatoes didn’t seem to take but the perennials grew at a similar pace
as they would outdoors.
Definitely worth trying again as it freed up a lot of space in the basement.
So many plants, so little space…
