Ode to the Onion (and garlic) and the recycled garden.

"People are like onions"--Shrek
Onions and garlic are on deck to be planted soon. We will be purchasing sets next week We are seeking "short day" varieties that can be grown in this cold climate and in this zone.  This will also give us a chance to condition the soil for the spring and summer.

The Compost pile continues to grow at a rate of about 50 pounds a day.
We are collecting cans at a rate of about 10 pounds a day
We are up to 10 buckets and lots of tubing from various restaurants...The beauty of this whole thing is that we have paid for very little and the things that we do pay for, come from the money that we raise from recycling cans.   We are creating a completely self sustained system!
