My Pet Peppermint Pelargonium
Snow still falls on the garden outside the window. We are inside surrounded by garden catalogs, but the one we want at the moment has not yet arrived. We order our onion plants from Dixondale Farms. This year their catalogs were lost in the mail. I can get pretty impatient waiting, so I went to their website and downloaded this years' order form. Tomorrow I will call and get that onion order done by phone. Perhaps then the catalog will finally arrive in the mail. We have had such great results growing onions from plants. Braids of onions still hang in the basement for winter use even though the weather here this summer was less then perfect for great onion growth. Our Walla Wallas were a wash out. This year, I think we'll get the Copras, Red Zeppelins, Sterlings and Red Marble Cippolinis.
