Seedlings are growing - now what??


Ok so I'm a little nervous. I have all these wonderful seedlings growing like crazy (just look at the size of this green bean!). I'm really afraid to put them outside as I don't want to kill them. Guess it's time to learn about hardening off?


I want to plant some of these in containers, but I'm not really sure which ones should go in there and what size planters to use. Guess I have a lot of reading to do! Anyone out there that can help me?

I have:

green beans
tomatoes
radishes
cucumber
peppers
marigolds
carrots
basil



Any help is most appreciated!


Oh and just look at the pretty blooms on my cherry blossom tree outside my window! I love these signs of spring :)

Did you repot them yet? Also, are you turning them? At least twice a day, turn them. So they won't lean one way. I guess I would put them in something like empty washed yogurt cups or something that size.

Funny you should ask! I have been turning them, I remembered you saying that :) However, I forgot to check on them for a day and a half and they dried up and I lost a bunch :( :( So I repotted them in some of those larger biodegradable pots, the ones you can plant right into the ground. That was a few days ago and so far so good. I've been taking them outside too.
