The past couple of years I’ve been growing a little tired (in the truest sense of the word) of gardening. Meaning, I haven’t been in a hurry to begin, or I chose to buy starts for some plants rather than early seeding them myself. But this year I’m finally feeling it again.
A few weeks ago I splurged on buying a lot of new seed rather than just relying on leftovers. And this weekend I sowed onion seed. I’m trying a method called winter sowing where you put the flats outside.
I’m trying this because the last few years my onion seed often germinated and then died off. I wasn’t sure why, so this time I have both new seed and a new method. We’ll see how it goes. I really do miss the years when I was successful and had a lot of storage onions. I love braiding them up and hanging them around the kitchen, snipping one off whenever a recipe called for onions.
Do you have anything planted or growing yet? (Inside or out.)
