WANTED: Have: potato onions, garlic, shallots

I have several varieties of garlic (Early Italian purple, inchelium red, lorz italian, red toch, shilla, ajo rojo, chesnok red, german stiffneck, silver rose) as well as yellow potato onions, picasso shallots, red blush bunching onions (plants), evergreen hardy white scallion (seed) and american flag leek (seed).

I'm interested in other potato onions and shallots (particularly gray shallot), and other unusual edible alliums or vegetables.

I'm not particularly interested in more garlic, except for creoles.

Would you like a trade of Egyptian Onions for your Potato Onions? Let me know.

Not many varieties of garlic do well here in SE Louisiana. You have several that do. I would love to have of any of the Early Italian Purple, Inchelium Red, Lorz Italian, Red Toch, or Ajo Rojo.

I would like to have some Potato onions and shallots also. I have never seen a potato onion yet.

The only alliums I have to offer are some bulbils of Egyptian Walking onions.

Promethean Spark; Back in the '20s and '30s Cajun people were being treated pretty badly. Many spoke only French. They would gather in homes and barns and play music and dance. This outlet of expression helped many thousands get through the hard times of the depression and persecution. Today's Zydeco music is a product of this wonderful and vanishing heritage. My family had many talented musicians and singers. Not the least of which was my mother and her beautiful voice. Y'all keep up the good work Promethean Spark!

I have a pretty large "HAVE" list. I hope you find some seeds there you like.
