Dear Friends,

	I forgot to mention a weed that is in bloom here and all 
about Kansas City gardens: Allium tuberosum or Garlic Chives. Not 
much of a bulb, but as an Allium I'll add it. It self seeds about and 
can make dense stands. I can never remember to harvest leaves or 
flowering stems, all of which are very edible and add a distinct 
flavor to Chinese foods.

	The white flowers do add a cheery spot to ignored parts of 
the garden. Yes I did plant it years ago and it still pops up here 
and there untended.

	Extremely easy.		Best  Jim
