|Egyptian Walking Onion Starts. 7.28.15|
|Buckwheat at one week. 7.28.15|
The Egyptian Walking Onions were eaten by rabbits. I covered them with chicken wire. They grew back, but then I was ill and could not get in to pull weeds. The plants appear to have small bulbs at the bases, although dried out. I divided some and planted in one of the "wells" that I originally set up for potatoes. Basically, cinder-block circles stacked on top of each other, chicken wire bottom to deter moles, and filled with garden soil. I think they will grow. I have more to plant in container at home, and still more to dig out soon. Technically these are not seeds, I know.
The buckwheat germinated thickly, in both 1-week-old plantings. I watered well, and also watered the 3 day old plantings that are not germinated. Prediction for today is mid 80s or higher.
I planted bean seeds in a raised bed that I cleaned up and topped off with yard soil. Most of the seeds are old. I planted 3 rows of Ning's Chinese pole beans, alternating the 2 packets so if one is bad, but the other is good, they will be evenly spaced. Those seeds are several years old. I did the same with Roma bush beans. The Romas are 1 to 4 years old. The Romas claim 53 days to harvest, which would be mid to late Sept. If they grow, they should grow fast in the current heat.
