I... have made watermelon! (sprouts)

Remember that scene in Cast Away (it was in the trailer too, so even if you haven't seen the movie you may remember it), where Tom Hanks finally manages to make fire, and he is so proud of himself, and says "I.. have made fire!"? Well, that's how I feel. Weeks ago I planted some seeds in little seed-starting pots and put them on the windowsill. Nothing happened. Then finally I got the idea to put them on top of the fridge and see if they'd sprout up there (cause it's warmer up there). And lo and behold... the watermelons have sprouted!

Watermelon Sprouts

No action from the red peppers or green peppers, though. I may have to give up on them for this year.

I see that there is dirt or something forming on the top of the watermelon sprouts you have. Is this normal?
