    Soil temp is 71°, inside today it was 76, partly sunny day, 44°.
    Over 14 hours of sun now,

    Will cover them at night, heat tape & warm soil should get them thru the nights in the 20s.
    Did save some back up plants, just in case.

    That's great Dave. After last year's Mother's Day freeze/snow, ours won't be going in for another 6 weeks no matter how warm it gets in the next few weeks.

    I've got 60 tomato plants up about 2 inches, peppers that haven't come up yet, broccoli and cauliflower that I started yesterday, lettuce to start today
