Which city or area has a higher population? The difference between temperature in the city verse the outskirts can be pretty big. A buddy of mine did it as an experiment for school once.

I think Spring Hill and Land O Lakes are probably pretty similar. I would consider both to be outskirts. I'm about 30mi outside of Tampa and Spring Hill is a little further, maybe 15-20 miles further north.

I'm in the brandon area and I have columbus and tea maker growing in the front yard. Put some sheets over them the other night and they are doing fine.

Good to hear...That's the nice part about having em in pots. You can move em if need be. At least for now, once they start stretching they find a permanent home.

This is probably the last week I'll be able to move them. The Galena is already at the top of the tomato cage I have it in, it's going to need a trellis or twine ASAP. Fingers crossed this is the last cold snap.
