I have a small green house going in my bathroom with radishes (that really want to go outside now) and a cherry tomato plant that would love to live outside and some kaleidoscope peppers that might not work out for m, and some possibly late blooming beets my daughter planted at school. Problem is, the ground is still having nights under 40 and we had snow on the ground this morning.<br><br>
Could I plant the radishes (which are getting way to small for the seedling sets I have them in now) outside and maybe cover them with something to keep them warm?<br><br>
I appreciate any help since this is my first real garden project. I am also doing it all organic as well, so any advice would be great.

I imagine by now you have done something with the seedlings, I just discovered this thread today.<br><br>
I'm in northern Arizona and we just had snow again 10 days ago and then I was gone for a week, so my seedlings are still inside....they are long and leggy and look like worms which isnt a good thing I guess....<br><br>
I am setting them out on the porch today and will let them get used to being outside a day or so before I plant them.<br><br>
How did your veggies do?<br><br>
This is my first try at a raised box type of garden.....

i live in Colorado as well. you can use plastic or blankets to cover them. or, you can get walls of water and that does the job quite well. i've found plants can do ok around freezing, but anything much under freezing is bad news. good luck, and welcome to the world of gardening in Colorado.
