So I'm planning to put them under hoops and plastic set up around the raised bed. 🤞 If not, I still have some seeds packed away as backup, but while I have a really long frost-free season, the length of time where the soil temp is above 60F is relatively short, so I think to get good results from my tomatoes/peppers, I'm going to have to keep cheating quite a bit.
