Did you know

That you can use  the bottoms you cut off the onion and plant them to get new onions?
I did not know that until last week when reading blogs. So I tried it and it works! The brown skin are the starts from my winter onions. The one on the left in the picture is from the bottom of a store bought onion I used last week in chilli. The larger one in the center was our last garden onion that was pretty dried up.It is growing really well. I will use the greens for a salad.I am linking to

The marigold seed I saved and planted are starting to sprout.

I have been trying to use up the extra blocks I found in a tote in the basement and a few more from the broken dishes challenge.
Mr.T. is making progress on the wiring and plumbing for the new laundry room.
I need to do some shopping today for potting soil and a few more packets of seed.
Have a great weekend j
