    Seems as though the onions past winter and spring are pretty potent. What do you think?

    I've been reading about seeding straight to the garden and am ready to put my seeds down tonight. I've been wanting to get out there a few weeks ago but haven't been able to find the time between rain showers to avoid the mud. I've already ordered my potato sets but they haven't arrived yet...

    I'll readily admit I'm not the best gardner.:upsidedown: I have a small patch of onions left over from last year. We had an early snow and they were buried. I was kinda suprised to see them growing this year. I can't recall what kind they are, they look more like giant scallions than onions...

    I am trying greenbeans and onions for the first time. i grow squash and peas all of the time amung other things. However, I have moved and where I am while not rural is a new construction area. I have a huge field behind me with coyotes and rabbits galore. I hate the coyotes who have already...

    Know everyone's probably knee deep in their spring gardening (got squash, peppers and cukes producing) but with the way the economy's heading was wondering if anyone has starting planning for fall? (pay it forward mindset) Want to get to the point having something in the ground year round...

    New member to the forum and I think I'm at the right place for some nature food/recipes. Tomorrow I'm going to make wild onion soup. I'll start in the morning by digging the lil' morsels, cleaning and cooking them with some salt pork and potatoes. Wish I had enough to pass around. I live in the...

    We're starting a vegetable garden for the first time. I planted some herb seeds indoors but I'm not sure if the veggies should be planted directly in the ground or not. I will be planting potatoes, carrots, onions, lettuce, tomatoes and a few others... Thanks for any advice.

    You've probably seen those net scrubbers around - they look like this: Take one apart and you will find it has a lot more material than a pair of pantyhose, and if you get them on sale [I got several at 2/$1.00] cheaper by far than pantyhose. Same idea, though; put an onion in, use a twistem...

    Just thought I'd start a thread to put my garden updates. I know that I always love to see what other people are doing in their gardens. First is a picture of the first layer of my tire potatoes. I am growing 3 varieties in six tires. Two each of Russett, Red and White potatoes. Next is a...

    I have decided to plant some open pollinated seeds this year. I have a few questions. I have several varieties of tomatoes will they cross pollinate if planted together? The same with some peppers that I have, some such as green and yellow bell peppers will the cross pollinate? Also will...

    ...was handed several large red, strong smelling, onions last night and since there's no way we'll eat them all, I plan to dehydrate them. I've read my BlueBook and the booklet that came with the dehydrator and one more book - but would like to run this by ya'll. 1. It's suggested to dry...

    This thread is being started because I received some very good and very important questions on youtube. Lets start with the video. The question I received: I divide my seed stocks based on several categories. Besides nutrients, the other considerations are how fast does the food spoil...

    Hello someone know a good method to store onions a while? My location is pretty humid and after 2 weeks they already start to get bad. Glad for any tips.

    Home grown onions are an easy item to grow.  Even for those gardeners that have a black thumb and kill everything they touch, onions should still be able to live through the touch of death. The way onions grow, they have several shoots that come off the main root.  These shoots develop sugars...

    OK folks I am splitting off of Shawn's winter garden thread. Sort of going the same route (great imspiration Shawn) but I am probably gonna be needing a lot more help. :( (Never been good at gardening) But like Kev has preached about, this IS something you need to learn so here I go. Starting...

    On December 16th my son and I planted son onions in raised beds behind our house. Over the past week some of them have started getting ready to pull up. This is my first year to raise onions. My son and I planted three different types of onions. Some smaller ones and some larger 10-15Y. I...

    These were taken today. The onions were planted around December 15th, so the have been in the ground for 4 months now. I have fertilized them every 2 weeks, at least.
