Sprouts of potatoes and peas emerging

I have some potato and pea sprouts emerging.  I'm always thrilled to see the new growth.  The 'Adirondack Blue' potato sprouts emerged as a blackish purple color.  I noticed today they have greened up considerably, but this is what they looked like a couple of days ago.

The 'Kennebec' potatoes are coming through also.
My pea seeds had been sitting on a counter for two years, so I wondered how the germination would be, but it looks like I've got a pretty good stand coming on.
It's always a pleasure to see new leaves.
