Spinach and lettuce seedlings

I'm not sure if they'll make it through the deep freeze after our big snow, but I was glad to see spinach and salad mix seedlings in my large containers this afternoon. I hadn't looked at them in a couple of days because of the snow, and the fallen power pole to the house that had come down and was lying on top of my potting bench, next to these pots.

But, with power turned off, and trying to get the pole and meter fixed again, I noticed an abundance of seedlings popping up, covered with small patches of unmelted snow.

I'd figured my early unsheltered sowings were food for the blue jays at this point, so I was delighted to see them.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
