A bit daunting but I got it done. 240 onion plants are now tucked into those long furrows. It was timely that the plants arrived on the day we pulled the last of the onions out of storage. They were looking a little worse for wear, the outside layer mushy, the center sprouting a green tip, but still edible and a good addition to that nights supper.
The days have included many walks along the streams and through the woods, taking in the clear skies and sunlight sparkling on babbling waters. I love winter walking, no sweat, no bugs. I vowed at the new year that I would attempt to make a daily pilgrimage to what I call the "Church of the Woods". I've not been entirely successful but I have managed to get out most days, even if just to make the trek to the mailbox and take in the sky and pastures.
Slow Birding for Chris's version and a couple of good photos. This little Casper above is a stone I found in the Current river last summer that spoke "owl" to me, so I carried it home for the collection.
Here's hoping March will get more hospitable soon.
PS- I just searched for onions on the blog to include a link above and realized I am officially an onion geek, there are about 10 or 12 posts related to onions on this blog! So I'll spare you. Search for yourself if you are an onion geek too.
