Enough with the Tomatoes Already!
I'm not the only "lucky" gardener this year. Someone was trying to unload some lovely large tomatoes at choir this week. I think this summer has been good for the plants. My area has been warm, but not hot, with foggy mornings at least once a week. I've been putting more effort into not overwatering than keeping the ground moist.
While I was busy ignoring the green onions, they began to thrive. Most critters can't eat onions, so I didn't even bother to spray them. The green parts of some are very strong and ready to use. The bulbs are small, but the green parts are more interesting anyway. The only problem is that they don't replicate. Once I pull one, it's done.
This is still my most successful garden to date, giving me hope that I am not totally inept at it. I'll be ok with pulling out the remains when everything finally goes in a month or two (except Gus), and I'll just cover the area for the winter instead of planting decorative plants.
