Garden Friday: Onions
I ordered onion sets this year for the first time. The regional catalog said they would send them out at the optimal planting time… which is apparently my 2nd child’s day of birth. So needless to say, I’ve missed the 3-week window of planting the 300+ sets as advised. But I put them in the cold basement for a month and am now hoping for the best as I try to make progress in getting the bed ready during non-rainy naps.
Anyways, my question to you is do you plant onions? From seed, set or what? And what is your optimal spacing/layout in a backyard garden?
