I live in PEI – Canada. I have a geenhouse that temperatures reach 35 during the day but go to around 0 at night. The soil is warm, around 70 all the time. Wondering when I can put my cucumber and tomato plants in the ground.

You want to plant when the night air temps are above 50F (10C) consistently. It sounds like you are close to that, so you might be ok with some improvised cloches (made with milk jugs or soda bottles) to help keep the warmer air around the seedlings at night.
