Onions! And Raspberries!
I planted some onions last year in my garden, but I think it was probably waaaayy too late in the season, and they didn't really grow very much. This year, however, I started raking the leaves off of my garden, and there they are again, already growing. Two of them are looking a little funny though...what I'm assuming happened is that I didn't plant them deep enough, and now they're growing above ground. I figured I'd just dig them up and plant them a little deeper, but once I touched them, I realized that they're pretty mushy at this point...is this normal, or can I just assume that they're no good and toss them? The tops are still green and looking very healthy, but I don't really want to take up any of my already limited garden space with something that isn't going to do well. My other question!: Raspberries. I wish I could give you a brand name or something like that, but all I can say is that they were selling plants at Lowes, which came in big plastic pots with pictures of the fruit all over them...they also had blueberries, blackberries, and grapes like this, and they've had them in the garden center at least for the last two years. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, this is my question: I read on the packaging that the plant would only produce plants in it's second year and on. Is it safe to assume these plants are in their first year of "development"? (sorry, I don't really know gardening terminology...well obviously I don't really know anything about gardening. Haha.) Or, did I just misread the packaging entirely? Thanks!
