Right on schedule, my onions are sown: one flat each of white, yellow and red onions. 11 weeks before my last frost date – April 30.
I can feel your eagerness from here!Good luck with you onions.
Exciting 🙂 Good luck with those onions!
I just did my onions yesterday as well. I can’t wait. The ones from seed seem to do so much better.
I don’t remember the last time I actually sowed a seed right on schedule. So far this year I’ve sown my onions earlier than my schedule told me to and the leeks were later.
My frost free date is May 15th, so I probably jump the gun starting leeks and onions as early as I do (I started them yesterday). But they always seem to do just fine.
Thanks for the handy garden planner, by the way. It’s an excellent tool.
Certainly ahead of me. My last frost date is June 15! I use sets, mostly because I lack the space.
Hi Kathy!Are you starting your onions in compost? It doesn’t look like bagged starting soil.
You know, this soil is VERY lumpy. It IS potting soil. Scott’s. But there are a LOT of sticks in it. I picked out many and threw them out. I hope the smaller ones that I left in the pots don’t cause problems for the seedlings. Aargg. I have 2 big bags of this.
I have grown onions from seed, but have switched to buying sets… so much easier.
I start seeds in a 50/50 mix of peat moss and vermiculite
I may buy some peat and vermiculite to compare. Something about this heavy potting soil doesn’t seem goods.
I went by 2 of my favorite garden stores today, but both were closed for Presidents’s Day. Too bad. Seemed like a perfect day for buying planting supplies to me!
Your blog is one of my favorites! Never thought of doing onions indoors. We planted ours yesterday in the garden here in Durham, NC
