The first set of peppers have sprouted and are beginning to grow their true leaves. Four flats of onions are standing like blades of grass, 244 per flat (less a few misses). In the germination chamber, the rest of the peppers are sprouting, plus early tomatoes and some cole crops. A flat of lettuce and one row of basil are growing also.

We had some rain last night, finally enough to wet the ground!
Just about 2 inches! I've been waiting for the ground to pick up some moisture before laying plastic mulch so this should help a lot. Have to get to work now.

Mom says, "Now that the weather is nice and we have lot's to write about, I don't want to be in at the computer. I'd be rather be outside doing stuff." So, here's what they are doing today:
Dad is spreading manure, or to put it nicely, adding organic matter to the soil. It's a two tractor job.
What else is planted? Besides tomatoes and LOTS of peppers, there is some lettuce (shown above), cabbage and other cole crops, and onions.
Maybe we will soon get some April showers and the people who are doing all this work will have time to come inside and post something.
