My first seed orders for 2019 were placed and now are here!

I'm attempting to again grow onions from seeds. So far I've only gotten ones about the size of golf balls so I have eight different varieties I'm trying and we'll see what happens this year!

I'm also adding lots of herbs to the garden. Last year I rearranged the garden beds and created an herb bed in the center of the garden. Time to fill it up! I have seeds shown here for Toothache Plant, Lemongrass (last year it was nearly as tall as me!), Red Welsh Onions, Lovage, and Winter Chevil.

I'll tuck in lots of Cinnamon Basil (also huge last year and it makes gorgeous flowers for cut flower arrangements and for tea), Parsley, Thyme (lemon, silver, English, French), Oregano, Catnip, Lavender, California Poppy and Breadseed Poppy, Passionflower, Hyssop, Anise, Fennel, Cumin, Culantro, lemon balm, Betony, Sweet Woodruff, Chamomile, Feverfew, St John's Wort, and Echinecea.

How exciting! My seeds have been arriving, too.


In re to your onion growing: I used to grow Ailisa Craig onions from seed every year. We started in February and they were HUGE by fall. Good, sweet onion - but doesn't store for very long.
