Remay cloth and onions

Well, it came time.  Yesterday I took the Reemay cloth off of the onions.  As you can see in this picture (taken June 6), the onions were getting tall, yet crumpled, and they need a chance to straighted up:



Only problem is that the weeds love growing under the stuff:

Yikes!  Yes, there are onions in there, although you can't really see them through all the chickweed.  A couple hours of weeding, though, and it will all be taken care of.  Gives me a good excuse to get reacquainted with my garden after several days of rain!

  2. hi, I know this is months too late--but chickweed is incredibly nutritious--good in salads, pesto, all sorts of good greens!

    I was searching Remay--look forward to reading more about your experiences!

  3. Sandi here (for some reason I can't comment on my own blog unless I'm anonymous): Yes, I put chickweed in smoothies. But not THAT much of it! :)
