I have about 12 milk jugs I put in the deep freeze micro climate (6) patio outside.
However, they keep adjusting the weather temperatures upward. Toady is a 67

Should I
A, stop immediately
B. open up those outside until this evening
C. continue ws but keep a close eye on the temps and open when it becomes
????? degrees?

Please help me before I fill the rest of the milk jugs.

Gloria... i dont think i'd worry about opening jugs until it's really warm out... mid-70's maybe.
YOu can keep sowing - your over night temps are most likely still cold enough.

You'll just sort of KNOW when to open them up. it will be quite warm in the containers.

keep checking for overly dry soil too.

Thanks! I will go ahead with the other seeds! Really, there is very
little to lose and, as we know, thousands of seedlings to gain.

Gloria, I continue to put out pots as long as the temps are dropping at night, once it stays warmer in the night I put out tender annuals, so you have lots of time.

I have over 30 containers planted now. Most of them have been
over the last two days! I am really excited (dangerously excited.)
I have found so many more seeds I want to start. If half of the
seeds germinate, I will have to have two or more additional
flower beds.
