I went out and pulled onions this morning. I planted 100 each of white, yellow and red varieties. This is what I ended up with:
A pathetic showing.
Most of the red ones rotted in the ground- I'm thinking a combination of the weeds, the amount of rain and the fact that I probably didn't get to them soon enough. I only have about 20 to show of the 100 I planted. Of course, we have eaten a few along the way but still....
The yellow ones did a bit better and the white ones even better still. But there are very few that are of a decent size.
But here are a few other photos of the day.
I've heard these variously called surprise lilies or naked ladies. But by any name they're beautiful. There are several clumps by the North fence by the driveway. Quite lovely.
And now- I've got to go work on our end of the year surprise for the kids. More pics to follow.
