Hardening off doesn't take as much time as it sounds. The later in the season you wait, the quicker it goes. Usually takes less than a week and expect the plant to loose most of it's leaves. Start it when you have a warm, moderately sunny, dry, not windy forcast for the weekthen just leave it out for the day and bring it in at night for about 3 days. If you can make the first two days shorter it helps but is not required. The next two leave it out after dark but bring it in before bed. Then leave it out overnight and you're done.
