Hardening Off

I set the plants out to harden off yesterday, a fairly long hardening off period comparatively speaking. The weather looks as though we won't freeze again this season, but I have a tendency not to trust that. I'll allow the flats to sit out until at least May 6th before planting.

Until then, the flats will gradually move out into the sun from the north wall.  Right now, only the marigolds are getting any appreciable sunlight as their hardening off period is essentially nil.

I did plant the pots, both front and back for a total of about 15, last night.  However, if the weather turns, I can pull those close to the house and cover them very easily.
