Low temps next week - plant or hold off?
I hate to hold off any longer. My tomatoes are hardened off (as well as could be with lots of overcast days and nights in the 50's-60). I really want to plant today before rain tomorrow, might get another chance Sunday before more T-showers move in, and next week has 40% chance of rain all week. But highs are only supposed to be around 60, lows in the high 40's next week.
Should I plant out the small ones (some still in 6-packs from April!) and hold back just the larger ones in 2-gal pots that have flower buds forming so they don't catface or drop the blossoms? I also might be able to put milk-jug or 2-l bottle cloches over the small ones - I've been saving bottles to possibly use to water the roots, though of course that means digging a new hole *after* planting to stick the bottle neck into after I'm done using it as a cloche.
