That's kinda their effect, no matter where they are.......

Now horseradish is similar as far a spreading goes....but does it a little different.....even a broke off piece will start another plant....
Then there is mint....OMG.....sme lls better than the onions.....

I keep hearing the Bangles.  And having weird dreams.

This sounds like a classic case of Alliumphobia to me, Tony.  :shrug:

What's really bad is I played in Gainesville with hair like the Bangles (back then... no eyeliner) and somebody took a pic of me with hair like the History Channel nut's after a P&M trip.

Man,  I tell way too many secrets here.

Mission: SOFWTWARE (Sneak Out For Wolfy Onions/Walking And/or Russian/Egyptian) was successful....    Arrival should be day after tomorrow , Wolfy. My guess, anyway.
;)


 Couldn't send off yesterday, as I had to drive 50 miles one way, to work on a couple of small jobs for the eldest son, & didn't get back in time to send them off.


  Still time to plant, I am thinking. They are sprouted, or at least most of them have some sprout.

.....and just opened less than 10 minutes ago.  My brother brought the mail up yesterday and since Heather had coffee guests coming, she put the mail in the laundry room.  Why incoming mail is judged to be unsightly is beyond me. :shrug:   Anyway, they're going to have to wait to be planted for a few days now, since we are headed out on another sightseeing trip.....I love retirement!

Thanks a LOT, JB!   I'll get the books in the mail just as soon as I get back.  I was going to mail them a couple of days ago, but I guess you already know the story of the 'Apple-update fiasco' when I couldn't access any of my B&B member's addresses.  :(     Thanks again, old pard! :cheers:

I might want to plant some next year. I tried planting an onion from the store that sprouted on my counter, and it grew and flowered, but it didn't get any of the little bulbs up top like I thought it would, possibly because there was no other onion to share pollen with.

I am interested to see if the bulb survives the freeze and comes up in spring.

According to what I read, this is the time of year to plant them.  The ones I got from hunter63 did not grow, but I planted them in the Spring and it was a HARD summer here.  JB was kind enough to send me some healthy looking seed/bulbs from the top of some that he found growing around an abandoned farm place.  When I get back from the trip they are going into the ground right away.  We'll see how they do next Spring. :)
