This year is my first successful onion harvest. I am gonna "show and tell" what I did. In early spring, as soon as the ground can be worked, you can start onions. This year spring was early and my onions were started in early February. I actually had leftover onions from last year that I never harvested and they kept growing. (Thank you mild winter!) I replanted them along with the new onion sets I bought I have a raised bed garden and I packed the onion sets in close (3 inches apart) in the 4X8 plot.

I hope to start growing onions from heirloom seed in the next couple of years. I really like the sweet onions!
