SPROUTS!!!!

Morning Folks,
As you can see we have sprouts in the BioDome. The ones on the right are Eggplant and the ones on the left are Peppers. They started to pop their cotyledon leaves yesterday but we were on vacation and Finnian is not always observant so our first pictures are from this morning.
In 2 weeks we will be adding our tomato seeds to the BioDome and hopefully on Apr 15 the ground will have warmed to 60 deg and we can start putting them out.
Somewhere around April 1 we are hoping to get some of the cold weather crops like Lettuce, Broccoli, Onions, Leeks, Celery and Spinach in the ground so we can be enjoying them in June.
Our problem at the moment is how wet our fields are. With all of the rain and snow (and melting snow) we mostly have a large mud puddle. With luck we will move out of the storm track cycle we are in and start to dry out. On the down side today, we are forecast for more rain late this afternoon into tomorrow. I wonder if this will be a benefit to us in the summer?
