Colorado weather-nights are 35-48 a good right now

Hello! I started some peat pellets earth day weekend and all of them are thriving inside right now but I'm afraid to plant them because nightly Temps are still ranging between 35-48. I have radishes, carrots and lettuce growing just fine. In my peats I have cucumbers, pumpkin, corn, and more that need warm weather. I'm afraid if I don't get them in the ground they will die too. I don't know what to do? I know the soil is typically warmer than the air??

You'll just want to keep them from freezing, and from frost. The corn will do ok if it's hardened off, even with a light frost.

If it's do or die put them out, go ahead, but find a way to cover them for protection in case of frost. Make sure you watch the weather, too!
