The mystery continues

I am fairly certain the mystery Brassica is broccoli, but no signs of heads yet. The kale seedlings I so painstakingly transplanted after starting them inside under lights were devoured when I was out of town. It looks like slugs, but my beer trap has not ensnared any yet. The dreaded cabbage worms are out already, so I'll be using row cover this spring.
Soon this bed will sprout green onions, carrots, radishes, and golden beets. Here it is getting its spring feeding of compost. I also added some organic fertilizer.
The bed was primarily okra last summer, plus cucumbers that were bitter and yanked immediately. This might be a good bed for peppers this summer.
