I'm still having the occasional seed sprout, both from those I planted green
and stored in the fridge and from seeds that didn't sprout last spring.
More than 50 seedlings up now.  Don't know why they are doing this, but they
are.  So far they look pretty healthy.  Only 4 have died but there are
always a few that just don't make it anyway.  They have now managed to
survive several nights in the mid to upper 20s (not sure just how cold it
got on them) and didn't seem to suffer except for one of two that came up in
the seedling bed.  The one is frost bitten, but the bottom 1/4" of the fan
is still green.  The other in the seed bed is just a bit older and just a
bit larger, with three leaves on the fan and doesn't show any damage.  The
others (in pots) had that 'frozen' look in the morning, but looked okay when
the they thawed out and have done well since.
