well, read Moe's outdoor tek. though, i am in roughly the same spot you are and its way too cold out IMHO. i'm waiting another month to go outdoors. maybe a bit too early, man. what are you using for nutrients? composted manures, peat, and wormcastings is what i plan to use on my 2x4ft bed. somewhere around here you should be able to find some good info, do a search for "outdoor" and you'll find plenty o stuff for outdoor growing.

well, you can't really get fruits until you get temps in the upper 60's to mid 70's consistently. though, i don't think things will be all that bad. how did you layer/mix your shit?
