Nursery bed update

The nursery bed of fall brassicas is coming along. The seedlings are seemingly healthy - good color, plump leaves. They still lack their first true leaves, but i don't foresee that being a problem. It seems that it is only spring brassica that give me fits. I still chock it up to the temperature swings in the greenhouse.

Update: 7/4 - Signs of real leaf growth are everywhere. While some of the rows are a bit spotty in germination, there are more than enough to fill our space. That won't stop me from starting broccoli in the last three rows in this bed soon.
