Does any one happen to have any Peter Pepper Seeds?

Nancy if you still have snow and ice I would say it is a bit early. I'd say wait til your temps stay above freezing at night and at least 45-50s days.

Deborah, I might be able to help you out with the Egyptian Walking Onion, but you might want to make sure that is the one I have, it's in my photos. And I only ID'd it by looking through pics on a Yahoo search.

And it won't be for a few more weeks since we are still freezing up here in zone 5.

Family medical issues have kept me from participating in this group, but I think I am back now and would like some help. Phoenix, Arizona valley is my home and I am actively seeking bulbs for planting, specifically two varieties of onion:

1.  The Iitoi Onion, Allium cepa, also known as Papago Onion and Tahono O'odham Onion

2.  The Egyptian Walking Onion, Allium cepa proliferum, also known as Walking Onion and Tree Onion

Can anyone help me locate and acquire bulbs (5-10) for planting this spring? I know I am late for planting, should wait for fall, but would like to try now.

Thank you all for helping.

Muriel .. I'm hoping that's what will happen with sweet pots this year and next.  This is the first year for a really large bed of sp and we can't wait.

We just finished the last of our taters last night.  They were all volunteers from the season before.  They came up even after roto-tilling the bed.  Sure did get a bunch of them.

Thanks for the heads up Michael-My husband "raised his first born Taters" last year and boy was he a proud Papa!!! It was pretty endearing He certainly got the gardening "bug" now.

Its almost tater planting time here in western Orygun! A friend told me about this site that lists dozens of potato varieties, many of which are heirloom types. Thought it worth passing along to the group: www.potatogarden.com

Thanks for that tip, Vicky :)

Some dang bugs ruined my indoor salad/herbs boxes. I set one outside so they can freeze to dead tonight what I didn't squish with my fingers.
