At this place I have had lots of fun with onions the past few years, made
more so

when they are huge enough to make folk say "you cant grow those here"!

 

This is my plan, OMMV!

 

at the longest day of the year onions here quit making plant and start
making bulb, so

decent onions come from plants well established at that time.

 

seed bulk in March and as soon as they are up transplant into 84 or 128
plugs, 

constant liquid feed at 200ppm of 20-20-20, 

 

cut back to 3 inches high with sissors several times

 

as soon as possible set into 6 x 6 spacing, 4 rows on black plastic.
