The tomatoes (2 Better Boy, 2 heirloom) are flourishing. The Better Boys even have flowers already, though they're only about 10 inches tall.

As for the peas, a little more than half of them sprouted and are about an inch or so aboveground, so this morning I re-planted where the earlier ones hadn't sprouted (39 degree weather--brrrh!). The worst part was handling the cold wet earth. The peas were soaked overnight so they should sprout in a week and a half.

The zucchini and summer squash were a total disappointment. Not one single seed sprouted; B is re-planting today, starting them in peat pots for transplant around the first of March, if sprouting is successful. Hope we didn't get a bad batch of seeds. It's getting late to plant them at all, if we want more than just flowers.

I've never had trouble with squash before. Usually you put them in the ground and then jump back. Just get out of the way and let them grow, as they take over.

I'm tempted to go to Orchard Hardware and Nursery and buy a couple of plants already started. Patience is not my strong suit.

The chard and spinach are off to a fine start. Seed leaves only, still, eagerly anticipating more growth (read: impatiently).

I guess it's time to buy the rest of the tomato seedlings. We're nearly halfway through February; no rain, though it has been forecast over and over--just high clouds, cool temps.

Probably going to be a long, hot, dry summer. And an early summer to boot.
