well there are a few things that don't mind the cold

yesterday i got some bottleneck onions..for green onions...these have more white on the necks..thus the name
i got a pound for a buck 60..
here's what they look like






they will go into the kitchen garden..i added a bucket of good dirt to a tiny spot beside my tree...i had some shallots and put them down the left hand side
and then just set the onions in the ground.. i only put in 18..in another week i will do more..that way they are fresh..
you can judge how many to put in at one time by how many folks plan on eating them



then just pull the dirt over the top gently...

i also did a tiny trench of about an inch deep and put some radish seeds in the same plot

around the back of the tree i will do lettuces..but it's a bit too early for them

love

sunny

i also did a small row of spinach and some lettuce in the little space next to the green onions, radishes and shallots

you can see the row of spinach..i only put in 12 seeds..cause the plants get good size
the lettuce i put three different types and not a lot of seed..i don't like pulling them out
but it's been colder this week so it may take a bit longer to germinate or maybe the seeds are too old
it's a wait and see








you can tell the difference of the shallots and green onions from the amount of stems coming up
the shallots are multiples and the green onions only double stems
