My home garden is almost finished. The side yard is looking nice (see pic below). I’m really hoping the poppy flowers I planted come in. They’re “Jimi Purple Haze” poppies. I suspect I planted them a bit too late and may have planted the seeds a bit too deep. Maybe I’m worrying too much. All in my brain. Actin’ funny, but I don’t know why . . .
I have a ton of walking onions taking a stroll in the side garden. Thing is, I don’t know what one does with walking onions. They’re striking, however, this time of year: straight as steel, deep green, nice bulb on top. If you look to the left of the pic, you’ll see various lettuces. They’re all volunteers.
