Hey. Another warm dry day for me. Snow's melted in one of my fields. Ground's not frozen. Hmmm. Wonder what I'll plant? Yesterday I planted pecans from the hoggy swap. Be a tough crop for me because they like humidity, but I might squeak by on winter hardiness. For me there is always a better odds with seed grown plants than with clones. More chances to spin the genetic roulette wheel to see if there is a winner.

My Egyptian walking onions are doing great. This is what they looked like the day after the snow melted. I'll start harvesting them in about 2-3 weeks.
