Growing your own onion sets?
Has anyone grown their own onion sets?
Seems like I read years ago that it is not impossible and allows one to enjoy more than the few varieties available. What I recall is that one plants an ounce (?) of seed in about a sq. yd of soil-you want them crowded. Plant in August and they are small bulbs that dry by the end of Sept...guess it was for the midwest.
Also recall a person folding cardboard and then drilling with a hole saw to get accurate sets or plant placement. Supposed to be better than holes in black plastic.
Thanks for any input.
