Fast growing seedlings under the grow lights

But its too soon to bring them outside. Tomatoes are very sensitive to cold weather, and a frost will kill them. So these nightshades typically go in the ground a week after last frost (mid-May around here). They’ll just have to hang in there for another week or so.
