Spinach is growing!

The spinach is doing quite well!  During the few late-season snows we've had, I've been putting the lid that came with the tub on, and that seems to have helped the soil stay consistently moist, not too soggy nor too dry, nor too cold.  The short amount of sunlight is, I think, causing the sprouts to grow slower than they might otherwise, but I think they'll make it anyway.  I hope.

Spinach has sprouted!

I woke up this morning, knowing that it might snow tomorrow, and looked out the window to check on the spinach bed.  To my surprise, there were little green things sticking out all over!  I had to go out and get a closer look:

Close-ups taken from my phone almost always look bad.
Green stuff!  Hooray!  Now I just have to keep them alive through the weekend (lows in the low 30's), and we should be good to go!
