|Green onions from Egyptian Walking Onions|
The onion bed is starting to grow. Planted roughly 5 weeks ago. At the end is a row of cilantro, about an inch tall, planted the same time. The Egyptian Walking onions are all up.

The garlic, planted about 4 weeks ago, is several inches tall. Right on schedule.
Yesterday I cleared out a 3-foot by 4 foot section of the tomato bed. I added 1/2 bag of chicken compost, and planted shallots. The shallot starts were saved from this summer. I planted 4 rows. That is from the original 2 rows. About the same amount is available for eating. Starting them later this year. These shallots might have been larger, if I didn't let them go to seed. The honeybees loved the flowers, so I didn't want to remove the flower heads.
