Bed7_23jan09_after_weedingHere is a picture of Bed 7 after de-weeding it. This took me several hours on 3 separate days, since the weeds were so thick, I had to pull them by hand in order not to injure the still relatively young onion plants.

Bed7_after_mulching_24jan09Drove to Larsen Feed to purchase rice straw to mulch the onion bed (and for new bedding for the chicken coop, but that’s another story). Take home lesson: ALWAYS MULCH ONIONS!!!
