I found a first onion sprout today. Yippee!!
I guess one of the reasons onions and celeriac are planted first is that they sprout slow and they grow slow. I’m wishing I had sowed a few broccolis just to get things going! This evening, I used a toothpick and checked around in the onion pots for sprouts. Since I like to use up my old seed, and onion seed doesn’t last long, I often have trays that don’t sprout.
The Pontiac onions are sprouting, but apparently not Frontier, Ruby Ring, or leeks. I had an email from Fedco today that my new onion, leek and shallot seeds are on the way. I’ll get some pots ready so I can plant this fresh seed as soon as it arrives.
Go sprouts, GO!
