Teasing Onions

Today I planted out lots of onions. How many? Don’t know. I started some onion seeds a long time ago. Last Saturday I also bought a six pack of onions. Today I decided that they all needed to go into the ground.

If you have ever planted onion seeds you know that they grow in a big clump. When they are about the thickness of a pencil you plant them in the ground. But, before they can go in the ground you must tease them. When the seeds are growing in a pot or a six pack they are growing very close together. To plant them in the ground with the proper spacing you must tease the roots apart and then plant each small plant in the ground.

I planted the seedlings around the herb bed. I surrounded the potatoes. I planted them around an empty bed.

Hopefully we will have lots of onions!
