I checked the weather. Maybe low 40's for a while so eight of my row enders are moving out tomorrow. The holes are dug. I'll plant them deep and cover them with buckets at night.

 

After that I'll do a bunch of the largest peppers in the center row and protect with a row cover.

 

Edit: Wow, check this stuff out. I post about my row enders and score me a page topper.

I've been waiting for quite a while to see this.  Hay bales, row enders, page toppers, it's all coming together.  Good luck!

Yeah, it seems like this project has been dragging on forever. Soon the fun will begin.

This is trump country. Even our dirt is orange, sticky and miserable :fireball:

 

This is what it looks like after I fixed it to put back in the holes with the tomato plants tomorrow.

The eight row enders ready to move out to the garden. Three Amish Paste, four A Grappoli D'Inverno and a Juliet Hybrid.

The row enders planted. Not much to see. They're avoiding the sun today. Planted deep and hiding under the black pots.

The first 24 pepper plants moved out for hardening. Next stop for these is under the row cover in the garden.

Do you leave the bags on the rootball when you plant? If so, do you do anything special to the bags?

I plant bags and all. I have sliced the bags with a razor knife before but these today I planted them intact.

 

After seeing how the plants shoot the roots through the bag to be air pruned, it now seems like an unnecessary risk to slice the bags.

I noticed this little dude when I pulled the wagon with the harden plants out of the garage this morning.
