The case of the missing sun.....

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So in the NE (Maine) there is a serious lack of sun going on, coupled with a lot of wet soggy misty moldy weather. We had about 2 hours of sun today in which I planted some beans and cukes.  My seeds and plants that have been in the ground for a month are looking good but not really getting much bigger yet.

 

My question is about my tomatoes. They are growing like WHOA! And I have already repotted them. They are about 1.5 feet tall and look lush and beautiful. I stuck them out in the shade today for a little hardening but then looking at the weather forecast its supposed to be in the 50's at night but absolutely NO sun the next 10 days.   Some of the leaves are looking a little yellow on the plants and I am wondering if I should risk planting them after a few more days of hardening?  Or if I should hang back till all this rain is over?

 

Help!?

I don't know...we've had along cool spring here as well.  My poor tomato plants got covered in 2' of snow!  They are fine, as it did not freeze, but we could use some more sun here too!

Can you plant them but cover them? I use a floating row cover or for smaller plants, apple juice or milk containers with the bottoms cut off. If they stay in their pots too long it may be hard to plant them out.
