Gardening: Spring/Green Onions

Green onions are a cool weather crop and are normally planted in late fall or early spring as soon as you can work the soil, that is usually in April or early May around here. The seed spacing varies depending on whether you are looking to grow winter onions or spring/green onions. In this bed, I wanted to grow green onions so I only had to space them about an inch apart. 

I planted these onion bulbs on May 2nd about 3 weeks ago, as you can see from the second photo they have progressed quite a bit in that short time period. I'm excited to sample this future freshness, the taste of homegrown food is unbeatable and these green onions are certain to be a welcome addition to many a meal to come.
