I planted some 1015 sweet onions and some red onions back in late January. They are coming along well and should be ready to harvest pretty soon. If we store them properly, they will provide our needs for several months. About 2 or 3 weeks ago, I interplanted some Yukon Gold potatoes among the onions, and they are now up and growing nicely. As they grow and need more room, I'll harvest the onions from around them. You have to make every inch work when you have a small yard.

Finally, some of my neighbors have soft yucca plants that are already in bloom. I've always loved the milky blooms of yuccas.
