Greetings from the Pineapple Express!
We got soaked in rain and snow. Only four of my ~
20 potato onions sprouted. All of my shallots did,
but they got a lot less sky water. (Their bed is
in the shadow of a pine tree.)
Is it too late to replant potato onions? Or Should I
wait again until next fall and plant something else in
their bed for the time being.
I have HUGE garlic plants. They love all this snow and rain.
Yipee! There is nothing like fresh garlic from the garden.
Oh and I have got WEEDS! Inspecting my weeds, what is that
growing out the middle my weeds? MY WEEDS GOT WEEDS!!!
I have got dandelion MOUNDS! They are 18 inches around and
10 inches tall!!! I tried digging one up. There must be
10 individual root systems in each mound.
My Potato Onion bed got soaked in rain, frozen solid,
snowed on, thawed and turned into a lake, had
green stuff growing in it, got frozen again, more
rain, more snow, repeat. I am surprised anything survived.
One time, I went out to inspect, but my shoe started to sink,
so try again another day. I now walk on top of the weeds,
using them as stepping stones.
You win some you lose some.
On the bright side, my favorite fishing hole will
have lots of water this year! Already caught one trout
out if it!
