Hardening Off aka Toughen Up

My darling little seedlings have been living under fluorescent lights, in a heated basement, with good circulation, plenty of water & tons of nutrients.. but eventually, and soon, they'll need to fly the coop and survive in the great outdoors.

To prepare them for the switch I've been setting them outside for incrementally longer and longer periods of time. I started this about a week before the transplant. First for 2 hours, then 4, then 6, 8, and eventually overnight. Tomorrow... they're going in the ground. Today feels like Christmas Eve.
