Great for french oinon soup

Started the seeds 3 or 4 to a cell in jumbo 6paks. in the fall, left them in paks until late June of this year then ripped the apart and planted individually into a raised bed, still harvesting in early November in rainy Wa. state. I usually put them out sooner like early May. Last year it took only 2 onions to make a great French onion soup. They were smaller this year so I had to use 3.

Flavor strength makes up for size...

This was an experiment, then again, isn't all gardening? I've never grown onions from seed but it was very fun to try. I started them indoors and transplanted them as directed . The leaves grew tall and strong, but I made a few mistakes along the way...like not realizing how heavy all those leaves were and accidentally pushed them over onto a row of bean plants. Many of them didn't get very big, but what they lack in size, they sure make up for in potency. The best thing I liked...being able to walk out to my garden and pick a fresh onion or two for whatever I was cooking up for the day! And unlike store-bought onions, I was able to use a lot of the stalk in my cooking - I couldn't help it...it seemed like such a waste not to use it. Will definitely try them again next year.
