The only seed sowing I've begun so far is my onion seeds. I started these back in February:
- Bronze D'Amposta red onions (ordered from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds)
- Sweet Spanish (Ferry Morse, purchased at local garden center)
- Red Burgundy (Ferry Morse, purchased at local garden center)
- Hybrid Granex Yellow (Ferry Morse, purchased at local garden center)
1 Sweet Spanish onion germinated, 3 out 5 Red Burgundy onions germinated, and only 1 of that wacky hybrid one germinated, but it promptly shriveled and died. Hybrids!
I think red onions are so pretty and I hope that my red onions seedlings pull through.
last post. I planted this onion patch in Fall 2011, and last summer harvested about 2 pounds of onions. I left the others in the ground (show in picture above) and they survived the winter. It smelled really good when I was weeding last weekend!
I harvested last summer from the onion patch.}}
Sadly, I cannot remember what variety they are!! That really bugs me because I'd love to grow more of them. They are mild and slightly sweet, and the flavor is very concentrated. A little bit goes a long way when I'm cooking and they're OK when eaten raw.
Are you growing onions or garlic?
