Hays Free Press * November 16, 2016 COMMUNITY Page 3C Montage by Pauline Tom Readers, Ron's mom, onnie Tom Manning (94) made the instant journey from her wom out body into the presence of the Lord late Saturday night. As we await her memorial service and burial in Houston (on the day this issue will publish), I quickly share with you two nature tidbits and then the letter Mayor Tiffany Curnutt wrote late last week to those constituents who get emails distributed from the city. In the first week of November, RonTom saw a firefly in the rain. Delightful. On Saturday, a small hawk landed on the stone water feature just outside our breakfast window. Thanks again, Tiffany Curnutt, for your service to Mountain City. Thanks, Mountain City readers, for any tidbits you can send this week. Email (subject: tidbit) or leave a message at 512-268-5678. Love, Pauline It's About Thyme Continued from pg. 1C disease resistance. Matures in 105 days and is globe shaped. Mature width: 5 inches. 3. Southern Belle Red: A large, globe-shaped, sweet onion that grows to 4 inches in diameter. It is the sweetest of the red short day onions. 4.White Bermuda: A flat, sweet, white onion that grows to 3 to 4 inch- es. This is an excellent onion to harvest early for scallions. This heirloom onion originated in the Canary Islands. 5. Creole Red: A pungent, new red onion that is globe shaped and reaches 3 to 4 inches across at maturity. A strong flavor that works well for Cajun cooking. These onions need a smmy garden location with loose, well drained soft. Mixing lots of or- ganic compost with our native softs is a must. For fertilizer, they like a lot of phosphate to start. Organic bone meal (0- 10-0) mixed into the soft before planting works well. As they start to grow, add a higher nitrogen fertilizer as a top dress. Blood meal (12-0-0) or Ladybug organic fertilizer (8-2-4) is very effective. Plant your onions 1 inch deep and 4 to 6 inches apart. If you like to harvest green on- ions early, plant them 2 inches apart and harvest every other onion as they grow. Rows should be at least 8 inches apart so there are enough nutrients to go around. Onions like water, so keep up with a regular watering schedule. (They will not grow in dry soft.) If the leaves begin to yellow, that is probably a sign of too much water. You can harvest your onions in the spring when the tops turn brown and be n to fall over. This should be somewhere between mid-April and mid -May. Finaft onions are easy to store. My crop from May of this year is still holding up well in the crisper. Take advantage of the season and tryyour hand at being an onion gardener. I know that's what I'll be doing! (At the moment these onions should be available in most local nurser- ies.) Happy gardening everyone!
