I had forgotten how quickly they grew last year ~ but I put them in much later then.

Phew! Do you like the scent? My family were'nt fans when I grew these a couple of years ago.

i like it but i can understand if its too strong for some ~ i dont have a very strong sense of smell.

Wow that is fast growing, I like the little Angel watching over them too;0)

i partly put her in there so you could see the size ~ she is about 7 or 8 inches tall!! she was a present a few years ago.

I thought they were salad onions.
Now you know what I'm like, Sticki lol :o)

like me tommy ~ food first!!!
they do look like that but thankfully they dont smell like that.

Are they in a warm place now,Sticki? maybe a cooler place might halt the growth a bit longer? I don't really know,to be honest,just a thought..I wondered if they were salad onions too..till I read your artistic info ! :o)

possibly would slow them down ~ feels mean putting them out now ~ they are in a cool bedroom.

just have to buy more!

I thought that you were going soft and getting all christmassy Sticki!

24 Nov, 2011

 

take more than that meanie!!!

not looking forward to that day!!!

24 Nov, 2011

 

Me neither - bah humbug!!

24 Nov, 2011

 

must be getting old and cynical ~ no magic here!!!

I've never grown these before Stickie ,but I would also imagine that to put them in a cooler place might slow them down a bit.
Thats sad Stickie, about Christmas,I mean.We're actually honoured with the presence of my daughter and her girls this year,so It should feel a bit more Christmassy.I agree though, its not the same when the family's all grown up and gone.

no not at all, i will see the boys but a week before christmas and not together so now i am cooking three christmas meals!!!

25 Nov, 2011
