Starting Onions From Seed Update

Growing onions from seed may seem odd to many gardeners.  And it may seem odd to you too.  Several of my friends have never tried doing it and are curious when I tell them about it.  To me, it’s fun and a great way to get the gardening going early.  I started this year’s onions in mid-February and they are about ready to be transplanted.

Here are some pictures of the onions in the starting flats that I wrote about in this post.  I’ve already given them a couple of “haircuts” and they are looking good.  These need another “haircut.”

Spring is finally warming up and I can’t wait to get them in the ground.  Give it a try next year and add starting onions from seed to your garden plan.
