greenhouse cucumbers, outdoor cilantro and chard

Just when I was about to give up on the greenhouse cucumbers and replant, they have appeared. The first cilantro and swiss chard shoots are up outside.

While I was tapping the tomato blossoms the other day to pollinate them, one fell off. I was concerned that it had rotted due to pollination failing. But this morning I took a closer look and there is the first fruit: a glorious green BB.

In the evening I noticed outdoor beets and indoor leeks.

I guess now I can concentrate my worrying on the potatoes. Not sure how long it should take for them to sprout, but judging by how quickly the normal eating potatoes I buy sprout I would have expected it by now.
