Catherine, Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Corned beef and Cabbage for us!

Thanks Linda,  like they say, "It's a dirty rotten job, but somebody's gotta' do it."  About the attitude of politicians these days. I like to think of our children like the harvest of the future.  Metaphorically speaking, they are the crop that will eventually come to harvest and be the ones in control of our sorry old hides. We need to make them smart, compassionate and free thinking.

Love your nurturing of the Kindergarteners, Muriel!

It's raining!!!  Just before the rain, I planted potatoes, bush beans, Romanos, shelling peas, garlic, bok choi, beets and cabbage.  Hoping for a showing soon.  I've been subbing Kindergarten this week.  No time for garden.  What a trip those little guys are.  One little Korean kid was adopted by Jewish parents.  He asked if I wanted to hear a little Hanukkah song.  He proceeded to sing, " The itsy bitsy octopus climbed up the water spout.  Down came the rain and washed the octopus out." Wow! Today Hokey Pokey with 100 kindergarteners!  Different garden, different set of muscles.  It requires far more energy than weeding, tilling and planting.  I guess that crop is much more important than my back yard garden.  If my home garden fails, it's only a temporary setback.  If we fail to nurture them, we pay big time!

Wally, anything is possible.  Don't know if a second year plant will produce or not.  Did you harvest the sprouts?  This would be a question for one of our master gardeners.  Bob's in Florida, don't know if they do sprouts; Bonnie is further north.  Maybe she or another master knows.

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.
