    i planted onion seeds with garden lime and they sprouted what else do i need
    Thank 4 sharing, U hang in there as well (^_^)

  5. @jude1c9v … Try planting seedlings instead of the bulbs. You’ll also need to plant the right type of onion for your area. Lots of folks order theirs from Dixondale Farms in TX…….Donald

  6. haven’t tried to plant onions from seed yet, I’ve been planting from bulbs i get from the farmers market. they never get very big though, any idea what im doing wrong??

  7. @borderbubba … If you’re planning on transplanting in February then close spacing is OK. I won’t be transplanting so I spaced em out a bit……Donald

  8. Great video Donald! I learned that I planted my onion seeds too close together. Next year I will know to spread the seeds out. Have a good evening.

  9. … Since I won’t be transplanting or doing very much thinning I’d say 400-500……Donald

  10. how many onions you get out of that 100 foot row.

  11. @CreazioniPinnacolo … LOL The color changes with the amount of moisture in the soil……Donald

    is it just me or is your soil turning more brown..used to look more red i thought. lol. maybe that worm cast tea is doing it.

  13. @SpikenAL … Next time my back gives out on me and I can’t walk that would be a good idea. Thanks…….Donald

  14. just an idea ! maybe use a 3 or 4′ ( foot ) peace of 3/4 or 1″ pvc pipe to plant the seed from the car seat :) but could be smaller pipe like 1/2″ with a funnel on the loading end … 4:10 to 4:45 could be done from the car. looks like it maybe ez’er to put the seed down that way just an idea ! :)
    Just tryin to help :)
    Thanks and Good Luck
