No I have not disappeared, just been busy, and had a computer meltdown last week. Once I got that replaced on Saturday I had to play catch up with school work and deal with all the hassle of setting up a new computer. Now I just need to get my pictures off the old computer so that I can do a garden update. I could just take more pictures now, but things are starting to really get sorry looking after over a month of next to no rain.
Wow, I had no clue how difficult it was to braid onions until today and after the mess I made , I doubt I will ever attempt to braid them again! I have never actually seen anyone braid them in person and was going by a couple of tutorials that I had run across online , needless to say I did not do a very good job of it and after a while just started tying them on. I think I would have done a better job had I had a human here to show me the basics of it.
I think I will just put the rest of them in some spare mesh bags that I have around. It made my hands hurts and the semi dry stalks tore my cuticles all up. Me complaining about something tearing my hands up is BAD, as I have some of the ugliest fingers I have ever seen a female have. They also make a really BIG mess while you are braiding them up. Anyone that has a real house would be better off doing them outside if you try this. I did it on the floor inside and this is the mess I had when i was done .
The tutorials I used to guide me in my epic failure are here and here.
