True leaves

Not much to look at yet, but the true leaves emerge. Now I have to pluck out those extras.

So far this year we have great seed/sprout ratios. Pima, green, brown, tan and Peruvian brown with very short staple but great dark color. 3 heavy hails have taken out about 1/2 the crop but we put in many extras. Weather has been cold and rainy, but that helps right now - less watering. Soon the changes will be visible each day.
