We'll call this The Week of the Alliums. This family of plants, which includes onions, garlic and shallots, has announced Spring's arrival. They've begun popping through the soil, shaking off their winter dormancy. As spindly as they appear, their hardiness can usually withstand the wiliness of temperature ranges this time of year.
We've got lots more onions to go in, and will grab the cloudy opportunities this week to transplant.
Next week the ramps will be prime. Folks are welcome to come over on Earth Day to dig in a bring this tasty treat home.
