I'm wondering if anyone sells some of the fancy heirloom onions. We sell a ton of garlic, so I'm thinking of being the official Allium vendor at market and going whole-hog on funky onions (Bakers had some fantastic varieties, wow), maybe even dreaming up a way to braid them (we sell garlic braids for good prices). How much do you charge?
Then some questions on growing onions: I've only grown them from plants (not sets, but the actual plant shipped by Territorial, pricey) so this year I'm growing from seed. I'm a bit late getting started, of course, and plan to seed them this week (some already were seeded a week ago).
-How long from seed sown to planting in the field?
-In the catalogues when it says "Days" for onions is that DAYS FROM TRANSPLANT like tomatoes (I'm pretty sure this is the case) or days from seed?
- Has anyone had luck direct-seeding onions?
