Planted, perennial onions and shallots

As the light was fading this evening, I managed to get the potato onions and red shallots in their prepared beds.  Although the weather has been glorious, I've been 'under the weather' the last few days, but thankfully I'm much better now!

Happily, I had prepared the beds in the satellite garden in late August (in terribly dry weather), getting them ready for woodchuck-proof plantings of regular onions, garlic, perennial leeks, shallots, and potato (multiplier) onions. 

So it was easy to tuck the bulbs into the ground, in nice compost-enriched beds. I watered them in well, and hope my garlic from Hood River Farm comes soon!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
