Hardening Off the Pumpkin Plant

With the plan of planting my pumpkin plants on Thursday evening, I'm doing a few things now to harden off the plants to get them ready for the outdoors.  This evening I'm leaving the plants in a room with a window open.  No risk of frost this way, but over the next two nights it will help prepare the nights for the cool nights in the hoop house.  I've also been giving the plants outdoor sun as much as I can over the last few days.  If a plant hasn't seen full sunlight and had light breezes on it then it  will wilt something terribly in full sun so the more sun you can get them the better off they will be.
