Last Fall I planted some garlic and onions. The onions are known as multiplier onions or what we used to call them in Kentucky – ‘potato onions’. They are a smallish yellow onion that is planted whole in the Fall. They overwinter and emerge in the Spring. As they grow they split and divide, the larger the onion you plant generally makes more onions than the smaller ones. I planted 6 and the largest one of those is giving me 9 in return. All in all I’ll end up with about 45 from those original 6.
One of the things I love about Rock Farm is all of the flowers. There is a long row of lavendar along the outside of half of the long side, a trellised area with chairs and a table and several beautiful beds of color. So much beauty I get to enjoy without having to have the land to hold it all. There are a couple of different lilies at the other end of the row next to mine. I can smell them from my spot if the wind is blowing in that direction. There are these beautiful white lilies and the orange tiger lilies too.
One of the early lettuce harvests. Don’t remember the exact variety but this one has great flavor.
