On A Roll

Another new thing that I'm trying this year is using sections of cut up toilet paper and paper towel tubes as planters for seedlings. I can fit four of them into plastic margarine containers. When the plants become large enough I can transplant them and the tubes will just break down over time. So far things seem to be going well. I guess you could say, I'm on a roll.

Pungent Surprise

It seems that a squirrel decided to steal one of my immature onions before the first heavy snow of last year. The pungent booty was buried near the base of a tree in our backyard and thanks to the milder than normal winter it has survived and sprouted. I can only shake my head in disbelief. I never imagined that the tree roots would leave enough resources for an onion or any other vegetable to do well in that location.
