Egyptian Walking onions re-emerging after the snow last week. These are the hardiest onions I have grown. You will always have onions when you plant Egyptian Walking Onions because they produce topset onions and re-plant themselves everywhere. They are mostly useful for their green tops.

I am letting two of my tatsoi plants make flowers and then seeds. When the seeds are golden brown they will be harvested, put in a paper envelope and stored in a dark, cool place until we are ready to plant our 2021 fall/winter garden.
