Getting into the swing of spring

The peppers, eggplant, cabbage, and early tomatoes have been transplanted.

The next set of tomatoes will soon be ready to go.

Dad has been getting his tractors and equipment ready, and ordering supplies.  He has already plowed a field for the first planting of corn.

Growing in the greenhouse

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.
