I'm going to guess that these are up a couple of weeks early because of the mild winter. But I have no idea because they were only planted in the fall. This area gets sun in the spring, I have a bunch more under the oak tree and they don't even have buds yet.
I took this as a sign that it was time to plant the first raised bed. The seedlings were hardened off this week so they were more than ready to go into the ground.
Some of the spinach still looked too small to plant, and I ran out of space anyway.
After planting, they went back under the row cover as temperatures here are still dipping in the low 30's at night.
I also planted some more seeds today:
6 Marigold Scarlet
6 Marigold Burpee's Best
6 Basil Genovese
6 Bok Choy
6 Napa Cabbage
4 More Roma Tomatoes
All of last weeks planted seeds germinated nicely. The pepper plants that were planted 2 weeks ago are getting their second set of leaves.
