In the Ground

I got the iris bulbs from my mom into the ground. It was a little later then I had wanted, but they still looked moist and fresh so I think they will be fine. I had lots of 'help' getting them burried and watered, but looking at the spot they are in, I am very satisfied with the project.

I used the other tree box for the onion starts. There was some mulch left from the iris planting and I mixed up the box full of mulch, compost, and spare dirt. The neighbor girl watched intently and then declared that the plants and the dirt stank. I guess it all depends on what you are used to. Smelled like planting to me.

It looks to me like the iris are going to be very happy. And that was a great choice for the onions. I planted mine among the melons -- for heaven's sake! -- and as of yesterday I feel like I can say that I think they are going to grow and be happy. In about a month they will make WONDERFUL little green onions for salads, etc. They the rest will just grow along and I can use them as needed. With luck I planted enough that there will be some that will actually mature into onions." Good luck with yours!
