May 14 – Onions Funions…

Something about pulling wild onions and getting out the whole bulb is SOOO satisfying. It can’t be done just any old day – a nice soaking rain in April or May will make the soil soft enough to allow complete extraction; like pulling a tooth. Wait much longer and the soil here in southern OH will be like brick and it will be  impossible to do this type of weeding. I must have pulled 200+ from the areas of Big Garden that were cultivated most recently – making them still susceptible to these pernacious weed. No bother, those 20 minutes at 5pm sure beat a long commute any day!
