2011 – Onions Planted

I planted about 40 yellow onions in between the rains.
I had a few no-shows in the greenhouse so I replaced them with basil and oregano seeds. Since they take 80 to 90 days to fully grow, I may buy a couple of plants for theĀ interim.
Most of the seedlings are 3 to 4 inches tall.
There was frost last night as the low was 34 degrees; almost a record. Dad always told me to plant tomatoes the 15th of May; I’d cheat and plant May 1st…until a few years ago temperatures were well below 32 on May 3rd and 4th. Lesson learned.
