You can't just bring them from inside and plop them in the ground, they need some gradual exposure to sun, wind, cool, etc. While they are still in pots getting some gradually increasing amounts of sun, you can bring them back in for the night if it is too cool-- anything in the 30's is probably too cool, especially before they are well hardened. It should take 7-10 days to get them well hardened, by which time they can be sitting in pots in the spot they will go. Then you can plant them, being sure to plant them deeper in the ground than they are in the pot.
There you go just as RBG said, problem solved. You need a week she just gave you a week. And I highly suggest hardening off. I try every year with a few straight out in the open and they always get burnt.
Sounds like it's too late to talk about lights and all that hoo haa. Support the ones that need it with anything available and get them in and out. They will get stronger soon enough. Plant deep, REAL deep. Some people say they use this to their advantage, big lanky palnts giving them more stem thus more roots.
Good luck, keep us updated.
