Howdy, Larkie...nice to see ya!

Are you looking for the above ground "topset" types or the "potato onions"?

I don't have either but can keep my eye out for ya.

I want to start growing these as well. I'll let you know if I see any good opportunities for them.

After Shoe's question, I had to look up the difference. I'm thinking of the top-setting types, like Egyptian walking onions. I hadn't heard of potato onions before... thanks Shoe, there's another edible to add to my "want to grow" list!

You're welcome, bit.

I found an ad in a local ag paper with someone selling potato onions so contacted Larkie when I so no response posted.

I'll keep an eye out for the topsetting ones and let you know what I come up with.

Cinda, I'm sure I'm not who that offer was aimed at, but I'd love walking onion starts if you have them to spare. I'm fine with trade or postage as well. Send me a mail if you want to work something out.
