It will grow back but it will take time. If do not want to wait on it get a new one.

My first planting of onions froze and the second planting had about a 2% survival rate. The second shipment from Dixondale really sucked, they had very few roots on the sets. Should have asked for replacements. Oh well, there's always next year.

My first 2 bunches got beat up by the snow and freezing temps......then the third set didn't really take either....as I waited too long to plant that bunch. I got a couple dozen left. I bet I had over 100 to start with.

That's looking good crapy. When I pull my onions I might do Purple Hulls. Never grown them. Any specific variety you prefer? How tall of a trellis do you put in for them?

tell the feed store guy you want quickpick pinkeye purplehulls...the peas grow on the top of the bush plant which makes them real easy to pick...no trellis needed...usually get 2-3 pickin's per planting...

That's awesome. I didn't know they were a bushy lower plant. I'll definitely be planting those.

notice that they are "pinkeye" purple hulls...not "blackeyed peas"...real easy to pick since they turn purple when ready to pick and easy to shell...not to mention really good eatin' with cornbread~~~!!!~~~

thanks...i've never had a raised bed...my garden in Crockett was out n a pasture like most of yawls...12 - 25 ft long rows...being 4 ft wide makes it easy to play in the dirt from both sides, reaching the center...

No one wants to pick peas with their butt up in the air. Trellis that bad boy!!

(I was watching You Tube and one ole boy made that statement....cracks me up.)

I am doing a 5' tall trellis x 30' long. Easy peasy! Pick peas waist high!

I am planting 3 varieties. Sugar Peas, Little Marvels and Purple Hull. My 30x10 bed is ready as of last night. Planting them today!

Hang trellis later this weekend!

Planted radishes, beets and carrots last night! I was "Rooting" it up till 8pm last night! (Loving the time change!)
