    LOL, to be honest, I am hoping the damn creeping things don't make it, but inevitably they will take over the whole garden
    Once they have creeped as far as 'YOU' would like--maybe you could clip the end of the vines off---

    Maybe this will be of some help:

    Here's the new plot I was dropping compost on. It doesn't look it from this view but it's 300'x50'.

    And here's the other field where we have 2 hoop houses, the nursery cold frame (18'x 20') and the production cold frame (66'x 30').

    Very Nice!

    Now all you need is to find and rebuild a proper manure spreader. We had one that was very similar to this one at the my great grandfather's homestead but it hadn't seen action in many years.

    I'd sent Tim Genuine Walla Walla Sweet Onion 'Sets/or/Starts'. The local growers plant in September and then they pull the sets/starts in the spring and sell them to home gardeners.

    The ones I sent Tim were really nice ones/they'd been brought into the store only an hour before I bought them (I'm friends with the Produce Dept Manager).

    I packaged them up and sent them the next day. They landed two days later. Tim had been planning on planting very soon as the weather was warming up.

    However MN's weather had a differnent idea! It snowed, and then let's just say it was a Beach for him to get them in the ground. His solution was those 'Peat Cups' that pretty much dissolve in the ground.

    For all of the stresses his starts have had I think he's going to be pleased once the weather warms up more and those onions get used to their new home.

    I had a friend who was a third generation WW Sweet Onion Grower. His grandfather had come over from Italy. Anyway we had a hard winter with little to no snow cover to protect the small plants. Frank brought some to show me the damage. They were blackened at the tips, brown almost to about an inch of the base. But Low and Behold his crop recovered and he made a good profit.

    I'm looking forward to seeing some MN Sweets that are about 3-4" across and sweet as candy!

    I donít know if anyone else has seen this. I went to visit my mom on motherís day. My mother lives in a typical suburban town with the typical amount of suburban property. Meaning, not much. But for this little suburban lot of land (cutting the grass would take no more than thirty minutes with a push mower), she plants a thousand little things every year as if she owned a farm. She was showing me all that she intended to plant as soon as the weather here stopped dropping into the freezing zone. She had some damn thing called fries and ketchup. Itís a potato plant and a tomato plant all in one. Tomatoes upstairs, potatoes below. Not only do I have no idea where she is going to plant this but I have no idea what it might produce. I love her. But I shake my head.
