It's not so much the daytime temps but rather the difference between day & night temps. If they are biggish plants & it's still fairly warm for a week or two, that should be long enough to get them settled in.
I still have a few bigger bits & pieces to put in to get me through 'til next Feb or so.

Hi Stash,
Often the answer is in the soil!

You might find lots of info about specific veggies on this website:

Re: Newbie to veg growing

Growing veg is hit and miss. All the pointers listed so far will be helpful. For example here in the far south of Ontario. My tomatoes peas and lettuce are still doing fine often I can squeeze in 2 crops of spuds. 30 minutes from where I live Gardens are done for the season. Best of luck and enjoy getting the soil underneath you fingernails.
