This weekend it was time to harvest the rest of the bunch onions that were planted last fall. It turned out to be just over four pounds:
We separated the onions into whites, stems, and greens and ran them through the slicing disk of the food processor. It wasn’t perfect, but it was a huge time savings. The boy cat had to check it out:

All in all, it turned into about fifty bags at one-half cup per bag.
The salad table is finally moving forward. Direct seeding is slow in the spring. It seems the better idea would be to start the seedlings inside and transplant. The “tall” stuff towards the right side is arugula:
The peas were planted on February 8. They’ve now getting grabby with the netting:
Sometime in February a critter came through and dug in the pots. Look what has popped up on the other side of the walkway:
Can’t stop ’em.
