That was my plan. I planted my seeds in a greenhouse type container and I meant to put them outside but got busy. It's been 3 days since I planted them and they are sprouting. Dang it! So I probably can't just put them outside now can I??

Haha. I mean just putting them outside as germinated seeds when it's in the 20-30's won't kill them?

I would now wait till temperatures are rising steadily. Newly sprouted plants are going to die if you change their temperature quickly. Most can handle up to a 10 degree difference when just sprouted, but not much more. If you heeled in the containers and covered them with some row cloth, they would probably recover or even thrive. Just setting them out in the elements at this point would most likely be their demise.
