Finally, a typical spring day here. Overcast, light rain off and on, temps in the fifties.
I went out between the showers and got a few more pictures and even got a few more seeds in the ground. I chitted some old beet seed on Thursday and when I checked them today they had mostly started to send out roots. I planted a row of mixed 'Detroit Dark Red' and 'Golden Detroit' and half of row of 'Albino Verduro Improved'.
The spinach has settled in and appears to be starting to grow. The 'Scarlet' spinach is growing like gang busters.

More peas are sprouting, and the 'Blizzard' snow peas are really taking off. Can you believe that these were sown last Saturday?

The arugula is doing nicely.

These are volunteer tomatoes. They are springing up like grass everywhere.
Elsewhere in the garden, I found the first of the 'Grandpa Ott' morning glories have sprouted.
The volunteer bleeding heart are blooming.
My variegated honesty is also starting to bloom. I have two strains- white and purple. I love the frosted look of the leaves.
Indoors I began to pre-sprout my peppers and tomatoes.
Now I need to figure out what is eating my radish sprouts...
