First outdoor harvest of the year was thinning my green onions. smiley

I started a bunch of white and yellow onions indoors and planted them out around March 25 (2-3 onions per cell in a 6-pack), walla walla (I've grown before) and yellow granex (haven't grown before). I'm not the granex will work this far north, but can't hurt to try.

I kinda liked the onions last year, especially because the pansy planted in the onion pot looked great all summer. Maybe that's the onion. Maybe it's the potassium-heavy root-vegetable fertilizer. Let's do it again!

The 2 month onion starts I grew from seed look utterly pathetic. So I also picked up some onion bulbs at a big box store, some of them already sprouted and looking 10x tougher than my seedlings. Planted both. The green onions from last year are waking up and resuming life in their saddle planters.
