Gunter,

Just one per plant.  Onions are new to me and I thought I'd try using plants, it's just a bit easier.  I planted some onion plants from a local supplier here last year and they didn't do well.  It was a dry season and the plants weren't the easiest to grow.  So this year I changed suppliers and ordered 3 different types of onion. http://tinyurl.com/jcfj5 You can start them from seed, maybe next year.

I've never tried growing sweet's, but I do love to eat them.  I'm running out of space and I'd rather grow a few "Long Island Cheese Pumpkin" plants. They make an outstanding pie....

The 1st of the 06 peas made it onto the dinner plate last evening along with a great heaping bowl of fresh  lettuce. I would have taken photos but everyone cleaned their plate before I could reach for the camera. The full crop of early peas will be in full picking this weekend....where's the butter?

Oh, this morning the 1st strawberries made it into the bowl along with Kashi 7 Grain Flakes.  Yummy!

Last evening we started the fall crop of broccoli, brussel sprouts, and a summer picking of lettuce.  The squash will be planted as soon as the peas hand over the last picking.

We're trying for dwarf strawberries on our window sill. 

I'm not optimistic ...

That should work just fine.  Keep in mind that it takes 1 yr for the transplants to start producing and you rotate fields (pots) every other year or so.

If none turn you in for growing and harvesting coaca. You might have to serialize, inventory, and be able to verify non-deversion of each leaf, too.

Now, that we have discussed the fantasy, some fool can suspect that we intend to make the fantasy real, and DHS will. My version doesn't have any benefit, not even a high or buzz, for all of your troubles to grow your own .. chocolate.

Ah just finished a nice lunch, fresh picked multi color lettuce, the first head of brocolli, a can of Bumble Bee Salmon, mayo and a few raisins for great salad.........all of the veggies are mulched in for a dry summer, hopefully a few tomatoes in 2 weeks..........as soon as the peas are harvested the squash gets planted....the Swiss Chard is providing greens almost every day now.
