Which Plants To Start

Hardening Off

  • Move in and out of the house or greenhouse starting with dappled shade and maybe a row cover, increasing time and sun for about a week.

Transplanting To The Garden

  • Check your frost dates, have ways to protect plants with buckets or row covers, some plants want warm soil like peppers and tomatoes. Make sure your beds are prepped and watered. 
  • Frost Blanket https://a.co/d/2QZw7cT– you can get heavier blankets, this is the most used weight. You can also layer it over hoops.
