    So far I buy whatever I find at walmart in sets–packages of little dry onions. They’re okay, but not great. I fertilize when 6″ and 12″ tall, generously.

    Thanks for the garden update. Everything looks wonderful. I will be teaching gardening for my Relief Society in 2 weeks. Do you have any handouts I could share with a big note on how to sign up to plant by color?

    Emily, I say way to go with the onions. I to like onions and plant about 100 transplants every year and they are usually gone by mid-winter.

  8. MG says:

    What size are they? 3″ it’s hard to figure out from photos.

    I bought small pots for $1 each at WalMart. I have used them for 3 years now–I’ve been very happy. The nice thing–I never have to transplant to bigger pots.

    Wow that is an organized way of starting seedlings I learned it hard way by pouring packets into a planter. I did manage to save majority of them but it was a lot of work and stress. Now I have started using yougart cups and disposable glasses to start seedlings. I transfer them to disposable glasses once they outgrow small cups. I am looking for a perfect size of pots so i dont have to keep moving them. I want to know what size of pots you use. I would assume they can be used over and over.

    I also have a lot of onions planted this year. I have 3/4 of a bed for garlic with the remaining 1/4 filled with onions, plus another whole bed for onions. Last year we tried growing them by directly seeding them into our SFG. They didn’t grow very big, so this year we tried growing them from plants we ordered online. They are already huge! We’re growing a storage variety of onion so hopefully we’ll also have lots to eat over the winter. 🙂
