Starting Onions

Although it was cloudy and chilly out, today we were starting the first seeds of 2010: onions. About 3700 of them. 2500 Ailsa Craig Exhibition, which is a yellow sweet onion and 1200 Redwing, a red salad onion. The onion plants will be transplanted on muck soil in about 10 weeks. They'll require frequent cultivation and hand weeding, but hopefully by early July we'll have the first sweet onions ready for the share boxes.
