Jaque AKA Garden Dog and I Are Knee Deep In Onions
It hardly seems possible that it is time to be planting our Spring Onions already. After the garden season last fall we worked the soil with our organic compost that we make right here at The Cottage. The ground was ready so we didn't have to do much preparation just til it, make the rows and it was ready to go. We rotated the onion patch this year from the North end of the Up Stairs Garden to the South end of the Up Stairs Garden. I like to rotate the crops at least every other year to keep the soil in better condition.
The Soil Is Just Perfect For Planting
We Planted 225 Onions
Jaque AKA Garden Dog says Are We Done Yet?
Several days after we planted the onions we got about 3 inches of rain, perfect for the onion patch. I am very excited that the garden season has started here. Thanks for stopping by to look at our newly planted onions. Stop back by from time to time and see how they are growing and when we will begin to harvest them. If you are still looking at snow on the ground, there is hope, spring will come!
Peace and Joy
