Dry spring

Mid April and still very little rain this spring. It has made it nice to get field work done but is starting to get a little scary. We are forecast to get some rain today and the next few days also. Hope we do,the ground is pretty dry. Also with this 'good' weather I don't have any excuse for being behind.
In the greenhouse the peppers are all transplanted and growing. The tomatoes are all seeded and in the germination chamber. If you go to the garden centers you can see plants big enough to set out but I prefer to "plant after my neighbors rather than replant with them". That being said this mild spring it would have been nice to have a high tunnel. I know the greenhouse heat bill will be less than usual.
