Onions were always a difficult crop to grow mainly because of the weeds and also making sure the soil was fertile enough. These days we have to plant 3 seeds in each cell that we transplant to make sure the onions do not grow too big! The fertility is provided by our cover crops, chickens and sheep. The weed control is taken care of by Ramon and his German finger weeder. We still have to make a pass with hand hoes once to get any missed by the mechanical hoe.
We have four varieties, red torpedo, yellow, white and shallots. We seem to never have enough onions so we increase our plant order every year. These onions are delicious in so many ways. Use them like regular onions. In late July they will mature into dry bulbs which we will store for your fall harvest shares.
