Wow! Were those under your cold frames ? I'm still waiting for my "walking onions" I planted months ago to take a hike.

No, they weren't in the cold frame, except as seedlings.  I started the seeds indoors in early January under the grow lights, and moved the seedlings to the cold fram as soon as they were about 3" tall. They were transplanted into the raised be the 3rd week of February. As soon as they were in the ground, they took off!

I start onion seeds in 3 different batches, about 3 or 4 weeks apart, so that we have a long season of bunching onions.

Al had to make a cautious Corona enforced shopping trip today & came back pleased as punch at having managed to get everything on her shopping list .

 As she unpacked she held up a 1 kg bag of carrots , saying " Look what I manged to get  , I picked the rest of the carrots yesterday "  . Puzzled I said , " Oh I thought there were a lot of small ones still in the bed" .

"  No my love , I picked every one of the carrots , you can now use if for the garlic bed " .

 I went garlic bed gardening /carrot hunting. 

 The carrot bed is nine inches down below the top edge of the raised beds brick work and had a thick layer of oak & hazel leaves etc. , not a bit of greenery on show in it . I scraped the leaves into a bucket to put in a composting bin . Lo & behold a few carrots were poking their heads up through the growth  medium in the bed.

 Carefully easing out a couple of carrots , I then cleared the rest of the bed of leaves and was astounded to discover the bed is full of small carrots up to 4  inches long . I double broadcast sowed the bed with carrot seeds  in late May last year for I thought the first early April sowing of seeds had rotted due to the very wet spring & cold weather .. looks like  there were a lot of very slow germinating seeds instead .

 Starting in one corner , I  kept pulling out carrots and filled a small pail with   3.3 kg of carrot ( 7 pounds approx. ) There is still 2/3 of the bed to go , it's looking like it will also be choc -a bloc with carrots .

Very Happy  Guess what we had to eat for tea tonight besides home grown garlic ,  onions in the minced pork & perennial kale ?  Laughing 


 I cleaned ,topped & tailed the rest of the carrots and diced them into 1/4 inc cubes .. with luck tomorrow they will get pressure canned & the rest of the bed will get cleared to the same effect . As well as some carrot & coriander soups being made for tea time with the rest of the soup being frozen , then  heat sealed & vac packed .

Honestly, I'm not just reposting the same cauliflower Wink  What are the odds? I wait a hundred days or so and yet two heads need to be harvested in the same week. This one looked like it was about to break out:

So if you have Egyptian Walking Onions, you will not be disappointed!  They produce forever, naturalize in.  Give them a spot where they will be for a long time!

+1 Last year I pulled out all of the walking onion after bulblets were starting to sprout. I advertised on Craig's List for free WO or bulblets. I had 3 takers. Yesterday I pulled out 6 squares so the rotted bed could be rebuilt. Most of those will go into the green waste.

Walking onions and New Zealand spinach are 2 veggies that just keep on giving.

Agree!  I am growing Perpetual Spinach (thanks, OG for the suggestion!) and can’t wait!  But I love my Egyptian Walking Onions, thank you Judy !

And giving, and giving, and giving...my Egyptian Onions are about 30 years old and still going string. Many neighbors have gotten starts from them, and they all love them.

Post  LilBittyBean on 4/28/2020, 12:35 am

Made some lovely summer rolls today. Used basil, chives, cilantro, leaf lettuce, nadapeno peppers, and carrots (Amarillo and Danvers Half-Long) from the garden. My cukes aren't ready yet, so I used some from my local farm delivery and added in some rice noodles and baked tofu.

Today we harvested 18-day radishes, green onions, and the last of the leaf lettuce from the cold frame. Makings for a great salad for dinner!

This week I've been harvesting parsnips. These were grown last year and left over winter in an old style amended soil SFG bed. They are delicious.

Mark, that long purple thing is the kohlrabi? I've never seen one do that before! Is it a different variety? I think mine is purple vienna but it's round.

The variety is "Blauer Speck", which I assume means "Blue ball". I grew them 9 per a square per the good book. But they generated massive amounts of foliage, shading themselves and everything around them. Maybe the nitrogen boost from a first-time SFG?

The kohlrabi on the four corners leaned out and developed normally, though large. The ones on the inside grew lengthwise to compete for the sun, I assume. After harvesting the corners, the middle ones started to grow even more. I feel obligated to do something with all the foliage, so I my harvesting has been slow.

Meanwhile, the kohlrabi I planted in the front yard are barely growing at all, even though they should get plenty of sun. Maybe it's too hot? Maybe the compost isn't as good?

Cherokee tomato growing since November.  I've carefully removed object references so you can imagine this the size of a football. It's actually about 2 inches or so.

Garlic! I harvested 8 squares of soft-neck planted Oct 1, 2019. I'll post a photo when I get it all cleaned up and spread for drying. It's the best crop I've had since I started trying in 2013.

Do you leave the necks on your garlic, sanderson?  I have always cut them off, but I wonder if they store longer if you leave some on?
