For the last few days the temperature in Toronto has been over 15 degrees centigrade. On the weekend, I moved the cucumber outdoors briefly to allow the plant to acclimatize. Today, it snowed heavily..what a sudden change! It's Canada after all, eh! Temperatures should rise by the end of the week and I will then be able to take the plants outside briefly.
It’s important to watch the weather because some plants do very poorly in the cold, and many seedlings won’t be able to survive a frost. Once the warmer weather is here to stay (looking like mid-May), my plants should be able to live permanently on the balcony!
