Salvage Advice

Hi all,

I sowed some collards for an early growing season and tried to grow them in a sunny window. They didn't get enough light and are now about three inches long, running along the ground, with upturned heads of about two leaves. They're still green and the stems are a healthy white. Should I scrap these or try to salvage them with a fluorescent grow light?

I would add the Fluors as well. Collards don't need a lot of light.
