I went ahead and looked at the weather pattern for Nova Scotia http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&aq=0h&oq=&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4ADBS_enUS230US232&q=weather+for+nova+scotia+canada

If this is accurate for your particular area, I would wait until the weather warms a bit before moving them into a 10 frame set up. I would wait until you're in the 60's F day time temps, at least high 50's night time temps.

JP;
Good advise you gave by checking the weather, before passing along info.

On these inter-net forum boards,it appears that often advise is given by people a 1000 + miles away, that just don't fit the location/situation at all !
