beets, chard, and peas a-peeping

In the last couple of days the beets and chard sprouts have begun to show themselves, and today I could see some pea shoots. It's been a long time since I last saw beet sprouts. I had forgotten what an otherworldly magenta hue they sport.

I'm getting antsy about the cucumbers. Germination time at 59 degrees F is 13 days, and 6 days at 68 degrees. It's clearly been a little cold for them. I should have started them indoors.
