No frost is expected. The plants were heavily mulched with wood chips.

Looks good!!! Lots of hard work, I really hope there's no frost. I'm too chicken to put my stuff out yet. But they haven't been hardened off as much.

My plants were out during the warm spell in April, and I have moved them in an out until today. They were getting a bit stressed, and so was I, so I took the chance on having no hard frosts.

That tiller seems like a little fierce machine. Nice toms!

it's supposed to be a snow/rain overnight here also.
Moved the seedlings inside even though they've been out for a couple of weeks now in their little covered trays. Just don't want to chance it.
Everything else is inside or inside my suburban still

I will take a trip to Lowes this morning, when I go to pick up some city compost, and compare my tomato plants to the one's Lowes are selling.

Temperature was around 3 C degrees last night, and no sign of pocket frost. All plants look good. Maybe I should go the the Casino, since lady luck is running with me.

Nice toms you have there. I'm going to wait until later in the week when temps are on the rise.

I have too many plants outside,I can't worry anymore if they will make it through.I must learn by this,although, I may be moving soon and I may not have the opportunity to start seeds inside in my new placeThis time of year is very stressfull for me, I tend to concentrate on Tropicals which need a bit more attention. and are more susceptible to the cold temps.My seedlings are all in, may the best ones win!
Good luck to all in the same predicament,hope all your hard work pays off.
