Jack, if those are scallions or green bunching onions you can just let them all crowd together.  The larger-bulbed type do need thinning.  Thanks to Darksider for the gift of onions a few years back that got me to try them.  Now they are a staple in our garden all year!
Garden onions are amazing under the right conditions.   

Jack, the tomatos look great!

Those things are up to the top of their cages already  Smile  Got a lot of tomatoes on them, still small though.  We've picked beans a couple times already.  And I'm giving away lettuce to the relatives. 

I guess those onions don't get big and bulbous, they're not much bigger than a pencil.  And we'll have a lot of them lol.

Take notes. This is high quality posting here.

It seems like everyone is having good luck with their gardens this year.   Thumbup

We continue to be swamped with cucumbers.  At one point we had a pile of 30 of them on the kitchen counter.  That's even with cutting them up for our lunches and giving them away.

The tomatoes are starting to come in.  We'll soon be awash in those.  The Better Boys are almost as big as softballs!  The Brandywines taste amazing, as do the cherry tomatoes we planted (sweet million and a golden cherry variety).  Peppers are still coming along nicely, and we continue to pick beans as a cyclic rate.

Our tomatoes are starting to get ripe, mostly the little Roma ones but a few of the regular ones as well.  I pick all kinds of beans but they seem to run out really quick when we eat them - either there's a huge pile of them in the refrigerator that I haven't noticed or else somebody around here is throwing them out.  We've got a couple of eggplants growing and the rest of the plants are covered with flowers so I think we'll have quite a crop of those.  Lettuce is going gangbusters.  I ripped out the spinach because it was way overgrown and nobody was eating it anyway.  Peas are weird this year, they only got a bout a foot tall and I don't think we'll have much of a crop.  Stupid peas - about one year out of five they'll grow great and we'll get a ton of them;  the other four years they do poorly.

Oh and I REALLY need to get out there and do some weeding.

Tomatoes seem to be hitting their peak

Nobody's eating the lettuce so I'm letting that grow to see if we get lettuce trees  Smile Eggplants are doing well, but my wife picks them when they're real small because she's impatient they taste better that way.  Beans were good this year, plenty for the family but not so many we're asking everybody we know if they want some.  Onions are doing good too, those things are really tasty.

okay,y'all, i could use some help,please?
i live in kansas,for zone purposes i think i'm zone 8?
i want to have some lilac bushes in my front yard,and i need to know these things.
1-do i need ROOT cuttings,or just limb/sapling type cuttings?
2-do i plant them in the fall,like i did in massachusetts? then they are more or less dormant until they get past 2 feet tall?
3-are they like hydrangeas,where the color changes according to the soil mixture, or are the color specific?

I'm trying again. I've got some potatoes, onions, and tomatoes. I'm also trying to get some zuchini and bell peppers going.

This is my awesome signature.  Jealous?
