    I put tomatoes out earlier than usual by using 20 gallon pots with cages built in (or using an upside down cage works well) Then I wrap the whole cage in a big roll of cling wrap I bought at the hardware store. This year I’ve put a reemay “lid” on the cage as well. I poke a hole in the side of the plastic for watering. This creates an individual cloche or greenhouse for each plant and it works great for me here in pacific Washington, since we have a short growing season.

    soil temperature is also important when planting a garden, therefore for most veggies I wait until around May 1 to plant my seeds and plants.

    For years, we have saved gallon milk jugs (washed and dried); cut the bottom out; and used them to cover newly transplanted plants (tops of jugs off to vent increased daytime temps)until they are well established. Frost threatens? Put the caps on for the night, remove before the day warms. Mini greenhouses. Bank the earth or mulch around the bottom to secure if wind is a problem in your area. Almost never a problem with shock if moisture / mulch needs met.

    I harden off my tomato seedlings (sometimes for not as long as I should) before planting them in the garden but we have lots of wind here in the spring and occasional lows in the upper 30s. I’ve collected the plastic containers that plants and shrubs come in and put those over my young tomato plants with a rock on top when we get strong winds. Yes, I’m out there putting them on and off several times but that helps keep the plants healthy until they are strong enough to handle the crazy weather here, otherwise the wind would kill most of them.
