Time to plant onions!

January 3, 2013

I know...it's cold and it might snow again. Why on earth would you want to get out in the garden? WELL, because it's time to plant onions you guys!!! Now, if you know me, you know I'm not a huge fan of onions. I do tolerate green onions and shallots and actually like leeks. But I know that most of you are crazy for onions. So why wouldn't you want to grow your own? Well, if you do, you'd better get on it. Garden centers will start running low on slips (transplants) soon, so now is the time to get your hands on them and get them in the ground. This weekend looks like it's going to be good planting whether. If you want more information you can click on this POST to read more about growing onions.

Oh, and you probably need to go ahead and grab your seed potatoes now because they'll start going in the ground the beginning of February. You definitely want to plant organic potatoes...no, you can't use the ones from the grocery store. You need organic seed potatoes. Cool varieties, like the BLUE potatoes will sell out quickly. I'll most more in February about growing potatoes, or you can search the blog for older posts.

I'll be on Good Morning Texas tomorrow morning, 1/4/13 weather permitting, to talk about planting onions and potatoes. That's WFAA Channel 8 here in DFW.  9am-10am hour.
