First an update on last week's Green Onion Experiment:
They are growing! Slowly, yes, but all the green onion root stubs from last week are making progress. In the picture below (click on photo to enlarge), you can see tiny bits of green starting to come up from the 1/8-inch long root stubs that I cut off from three full-grown green onions last week. The root stubs from green onions thinnings, which were cut longer at around 1 inch each, have green growth of more than an inch already. The rest of the large green onions in this pot have been growing for about two months now from 2-inch root stubs of supermarket green onions.
I harvested the rest of the full-grown green onions from this pot. Unfortunately, some of the white bulb parts got mushy and infested with onion maggots (ewwww), so those got tossed. The rest of them look good enough to eat.
I also got a couple (yes, only TWO) of tiny sugar snap peas from my pea plants that I thought were dead. And the bush beans are starting to produce some green beans.
One of these days, I hope I will actually harvest more than a pound of veggies in a week. I get such a huge case of vegetable envy every time I see mouth-watering pictures of other people's large and colorful harvests.
See Daphne's Harvest Monday for other veggie growers' harvests.
