Serving time for an urban garden?

Ok, so the title is a little dramatic but the story is still shocking!My latest inspiration is the Dervaes family. And if you dont know who they are you really should read about them.

Very cool!  With hopes of one day modeling my yard after theirs, this recent story (which I've posted a link for) has me wondering what my township will think when most of my front yard is an…See More

"Sets will generally mature and fall over sooner because they are already a year old when you plant them. I would definitely pick the one that's flowered because it won't keep. Definitely start harvesting and curing at least the largest of…"

"It is all good.  Leave 'em, eat 'em, the onion will keep on doing its onion thing.  One neat thing about onions, garlic and many other underground bulb plants is (to an extent) they will self-regulate their depth, pulling…"

Mrs. Weeb replied to Heather Skerl Spegal's discussion 'Onion help!'
"You didn't say whether yo started with seeds, plants, or sets? I'm assuming sets. We have really clay-ey soil so I plant onion sets with as much as 1/2 the top sticking out of the ground, they do much better in our hard dirt planted that…"
