Planting Onions

These are onions started from seed.   This year we are planting two types,  a long keeping yellow onion and a Spanish sweet onion.   After several years of trial and error we have perfected the technique of growing onions.   They are started indoors under lights about a month or so before.   Once the weather is better we bring them outside daily to harden off.   To protect the seedlings from frost we bring in the onions  every evening .   By doing this the onions become accustomed to  the elements, they do not undergo a stressful shock during planting time.
