. Wow, I am impressed most of you folks start your seeds.
I am a bit lame in that arena still. Other than stuff that sprouts in place, I buy plants at the local greenhouse. Maybe because my garden tends on the small side, and I cannot use a whole packet of certain seeds. Like, I might plant one sungold cherry tomato, a couple of brandywine, 4 poblano and 4 jalapeno, etc. I guess the greenhouse has a good selection, but probably more $pendy.
I have been screening and packing compost. Trimmed back the raspberries, planted some spinach, lettuce and cilantro. Garlic just came up this week.
So onions. I want to get onions right this year, and be able to stick a bunch away for use all winter.
My success with them in the past has been spotty, which seems odd to me because they seem simple enough.
I start with the little bulbs; is that what most of you do? Most come up, but a lot went to flower right off the bat last year, which looks cool but does not make a large, storable onion. Any thoughts on that?
