Usually I’ll plant a total of 5 to 6 dozen of various types of onions for the planting season. This season, I’ve only planted 2 rows of the same onion, Texas Sweet.
Planting onion sets are pretty basic. You need to make sure you have a really good soil mixture to include (of course soil), compost and peat.
Create nice neat furrows (a long narrow trench) for the amount of onions you wish to plant. Once you’ve created nice furrows, make sure to soak water in each furrow.
Then poke holes in the soil with your finger (not too deep) every 4 to 5 inches.
Place an onion set in each hole, gradually pinch soil around the base of the onion set.
Water consistently, and within a couple of months you’ll have beautiful onions to harvest and put up with your preps.
