I gave away about 3X this much Romaine last week, I pulled the rest of the Romaine lettuce today, tis bitter now as we are getting warmer nights, lots of ‘green bulk’ for the compost heap…I guess it has Nitrogen, I consider all green weeds that hit the pile, as Nitrogen.
Garlic blooming just now, I planted the seed for this immediately last year when it matured, leave any baby corms in the ground also, late summer. I grow garlic mainly for the stinky juice to put in my varmit spray repellent, the stalks yield lots of varmit juice.
The wild onions bloom at same time as garlic, now these onion tops we like to eat the green stems, cut up in little pieces, I guess they are ‘chive-like’, but these probably aren’t officially ‘chives’…just wild onions! Whenever I’m out weeding or foraging ALL my wild onions get dug up and end up in this spot of good dirt. The white part of the onion never gets any larger than a dime diameter, but those are edible too I guess.—I just cut the tops, I leave a few onion tops to bloom & reseed.
