If the weather in Austin has been anything like the weather in Albuquerque, the plants are probably terribly confused. They don't know if they're supposed to grow or hibernate. One day it is in the 80's and the next day it barely gets above 50. Only the last few days have the night time temps been above 50 here. The corn, beans and peas seeds that I planted about 12 days ago suddenly sprang out of the soil this morning.

Once the night time temps are steadily above 50 degrees, your plants will spring into action.

I never heard of tomato hardening, news to me. Plant 'em when it's time. (Of course, I'm from California). I suppose I don't get trying to beat potential frost.

Urp, I was late to read Ceili's answer.

I'm not that big a seed fan. Just give me the wee starters from Alameda nursery, which does all that for you, all local plants.
