How often do you buy onions at the store? I know that before I started growing my own, I bought them almost weekly! Onions are just one of those vegetables that a lot of people don’t think about growing.
If people do decide to grow onions, they just stick a few in and eat them fresh! I do that with sweet onions, but I personally like to grow enough onions to keep our household in home grown onions for most of the year. How do I do that?
First, I grow onion by seed, rather than by sets. I go into more detail about why in this article about How to Plant Onion Seed.
In this article I explain exactly How to Plant Onion Seedlings.
If you are also interested in growing the majority of onions that your family uses, it is super important to choose the right variety. Sweet onions have a lot of sugar, and don’t keep well. You need to choose an onion variety that is known for being a long keeping onion or storage onion. These are the ones that store the best.
I go into much more detail in this article about How to Store Onions from the Garden Through the Winter.
In order to store onions properly, first they must be harvested and cured properly. That is why I chose my featured post this week, since I haven’t really covered that on my blog yet in fine detail.
