Kitchen Garden. Planting Onions Outdoors. 3.8.17
I wasn't confident about the seedlings that I started, and the sets looked crummy, so when I was at a nursery this week, I bought a bundle of plants. They were cheap, it won't break the bank. However, I did not initially want to go that route.
Here is the experiment. In the same garden bed, I have a row of sets, a row of plants that I grew from seeds, and 2 rows of plants that were bought as plants. It's not a real science experiment because they are not the same variety, but then I'm not going to publish in a science journal anyway.
As the other seedlings start to look better, I'll plant them in the outside bed too. We eat about one onion daily, and some are sold as long-keepers, so maybe there will be enough for a 9 month supply. Maybe not.
