Answer: If you can keep your seedlings -- by now large plants! -- growing under plenty of light, you should be fine in the garden. If the plants get out of hand and become too large for your growing area, you might try setting out some plants a little early and use a protective row cover. Fluorescent lights, though the best artificial lights, provide nowhere near the intensity of direct sunlight, so you may find that your crops don't necessarily mature any faster than had you started the plants just 8 weeks before transplant time.
