Onions and potatoes
Hi everyone, hope you've all had an enjoyable Christmas. The garden catalogues have started arriving here and my kind is on next years garden. I will be graduating in May and do don't know if we will be moving during the summer. So this year I'm planning to concentrate on a spring garden rather than summer crops. Should save me some space by forgoing tomatoes and peppers!
After looking through the forum, I think I will try growing onions this year since well have space and (I think?) will he harvested by July. I see that Dixondale comes highly recommended. Does anyone know if these are sold anywhere locally? I checked their website but it pricey to order just one or two bunches.
Also thinking of giving potatoes a try this year, so does anyone gave any recommendations of where to find seed potatoes? Local would be great, I am in norman.
One other question, can garlic and onions handle partial shade? Before I decide just where to put them.
Also thanks for all the advice over last year. I totaled up today and we harvested 28 lbs of cukes and 24 lb of (mostly hot) peppers and 14 lb if eggplant. I was so pleased! Especially as it was out first full year of gardening!
