      1. As always, you inspire and awe me. :-) Have you grown Egyptian Walking Onions before?

        1. I've got some in the garden now - will have enough to harvest in the spring. They're very prolific!! I can use the greens now - they seem to be very cold hardy.

      2. "What a wonderful garden!", said the apartment dweller with the wilting fern. Merry Christmas, and may your garden, your happiness, and your prosperity all grow mightily in the New Year.

        1. Thanks! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

      3. I love Baker Creek-they have the best seeds and I love their reasonable shipping fees-I was just going thru my catalog this afternoon
        Merry Christmas
