Planting/Harvesting Onions Question
So, today while I was by my lonesome at work, I got to thinking about planting. The first thing I will be starting soon are onions. I have only grown onions once, and they were less than spectacular. I grew them from a set I got at the big box store. I know how to cure them, thanks to you all last summer. But I really want to understand when they should go into the ground (after starting from seed this year) and when they truly should be harvested. I know I will have to do some soil amending as my raised beds have really settled and compacted and the soil will need to be way more loose and draining. Last year, I just threw them in and pulled them out without really knowing anything. Any pointers from you all brilliant minds out there???
