Hoping for a good transition

By Penny Stine

We went camping over this last weekend, so no gardening chores for me. When we got home on Sunday, I decided it was time to start transitioning the rest of the plants that I started from seed.

I had the trays on plant shelves in two different rooms with southern-facing windows. It took me almost 10 minutes just to move all these plants outside. Since it wasn't supposed to get anywhere near freezing, I've left them outside since Sunday. 
This table on the deck is an ideal place to transition the plants. The deck faces north, so the plants are in the shade until late afternoon when some sunlight from the setting sun (which is veering toward the northwest) dapples through the trees.

Although the wind doesn't usually whip around too much on the deck, there's a forecast for high wind today, so I moved all the trays to the floor under the table this morning. I'm planning on moving them into the sunlight tomorrow morning (at least until lunch time), but then I'll probably put them inside tomorrow night, since the forecast says it could get down to 33. They will fill my dining table, but I really don't want to kill them now!
