I also asked this in the Seed Germination forum, but I'd like to ask it here, too. You guys are a wealth of information!
I have a couple of trays of APS Seed Starter System from Gerdener's Supply. (the kind with the reservoir at the bottom, water wicking mat, and tray for seedlings on it, with cover.
Can I put the seeds in and immediately put them outside in cool weather? The reason I'm trying this is I want to avoid the hardening off period, since I'm away from home 5 days a week, 12-13 hours a day.
The seeds are lettuce and spinach, and right now its 59 degrees outside.
