Asparagus, Rhubarb and Spinach

The garden is now producing asparagus, rhubarb and spinach. The rhubarb has gone into a cake, and two varieties of jelly. So far we are eating the asparagus and spinach either raw or just cooked fairly plain. A couple of neighbors have gotten asparagus.
The beets, chard, cabbage, broccoli and lettuce are doing fine. Average last frost for the area is April 11. Think I will wait a bit longer than that before setting out the tomatoes. The county extension agent also said that peppers and eggplants need soil temperatures of 70F before they do much of anything except just "sit and pout." Guess I will wait even longer before setting them out.
The squash, cukes, melons, etc are sprouting in the greenhouse. Think I will start a few more things that have occurred to me. I saw a picture of "Black Sea Man" tomato and since I have a pack of seeds for it, think I will set out a couple. I also need to start some okra and I noticed I forgot to start a variety of pepper that I like to have. Back to the greenhouse.

Have you had good luck starting the squash and cukes in the greenhouse and transplanting? What do you start them in? I haven't any luck at all. In fact I have tried 3 times in the last month or so to get some started and they wont even germinate. I brought them in the house and they still didn't so I am assuming bad seeds. The good news is the zucchini I started back in January is full of flowers :)
