So I have all these tomatoes and peppers (and a bunch of other stuff, but the tomatoes and peppers are the tenderest) sitting out on my deck, hardening off and waiting to be planted or sold.
Tonight and tomorrow night it is predicted to go down to 36 degrees, which is a little cold for them.
But the prediction for tonight says temperature does not dip below 40 degrees until 4 AM and then by 9AM it is back up to 40. I am often a degree or two warmer than the prediction, especially on the deck which is backed up by the house, so protected.
So what do you think... can I risk leaving them out through these two nights or do I have to bring them back in? They are big sturdy plants (though some of the tomatoes have gotten a little leggy) and many of them are blooming already.
