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.
Planted one potato bag, with 5 sprouted Red Norland. Used a little Gurney's potato fertilizer, though it says to add that after the plants emerge.
April 11: Planted 2nd potato growbag with 5 more sprouted Red Norland. No fertilizer in this bag - will wait til they emerge as per instructions. The seed potato bag said "plant with onions" so added 4 more onion bulbs to the bag. Also put 5 onions under the front stoop.
