Spring has re-sprung

After two weeks of cold, cloudy weather, the temperature has turned. The sun warmed up the greenhouse so much that mom had to open the doors today. The first pair of barn swallows has started swooping above the greenhouse. I don't have to wear a hat inside the house anymore. It seems that Spring has arrived to stay.

With better weather, things are growing faster. There are a few sprouts that need to be transplanted, but most of them (like these tomatoes) just need to get bigger.Here are the latest seeds started: a few onions that sprout like green hairpins, and spindly tomatoes just starting to open their leaves.
