hi all. first time seed grower and i made it to the transfer(this past weekend)

although some of them are growing a a small true leaf nothing has gotten established enough to warrent hardening off. know i started 2 weeks or so too late but whats the deal? seedlings are all about 1-1 1/2 inch tall. should i just try to harden off to get them outside? will i even get anything off them? (tomatoes, peppers, herbs)

Where are they growing? Under lights, in a window, in the dark? More info please!

RE: seedlings still not ready. whats the deal?

It's still too early to plant tomatoes and especially peppers in your zone anyway so there isn't any rush. You still have a couple of weeks and assuming decent growing conditions they will kick into high gear in plenty of time. Meanwhile make sure you aren't over-watering. That stunts and stalls growth more than anything.

You can't make up for 2 weeks in 2 days. Patience. ;)
