Gardening - Cold Weather Seeds & Roots

This year I will be growing some Blue Potatoes in the potato bin I built. I picked up a bag of seeds at Dayton Fruit Stand this week. I will probably give away a few of the seeds. I think I bought more than I will use.

I also picked up some onion sets and shallots. I already have a few onion multipliers that I saved from last year. We go through a lot of onions here. I like the red onions because they are milder and easier on my stomach.

I picked up a couple artichoke roots. Some people have good luck with them coming back every year in Zone 6, if they mulch heavily. I'm going to try it. I've never grown artichokes before. I'm curious. I will be planting them as companions to my rhubarb and asparagus, as well as some kale and parsley in the same bed.
