I'm trying to grow tomato from seed. I know it's a bit late. Daytime temps here are consistently 60-70F right now. I know that's not optimal for germination, but it's good for growth of tomatoes.
My question is, can I germinate inside, but then as soon as germination occurs, move the seedlings outside to get full sun and environmental conditions? My rationale is that in this way, I can avoid the process of hardening the plants. The daytime temps seem fine for the tomatoes. Night sometimes drops high 40's, low 50's, but i can move the containers inside if need be during the night.
Is this OK? Will moving the seedlings outside immediately kill them, or will this (as I am assuming) make them hardy and strong from the get-go since they don't grow indoors?
