leggy sprouts

This is my first attempt at a late summer garden. Planted seedlings and set out in my covered pool area. Several seedlings are “leggy” and don’t know if I should wait a couple weeks and replant those or what. We are expecting rain for the next week & 1/2. Secondary leaves haven’t started, and seeds were planted 7/31. Concerned about that also.

Typically leggy seedlings are due to too little light. If you can get them more light, perhaps by moving them to a brighter location or with supplemental light, then they should resume normal growth.
