Onions on plastic

Onions usually get planted around our place in early April, but because of all the early moisture, this year’s onion crop didn’t go in until the first part of May.


We like to use onion sets because they are fairly hardy and have a higher success rate that direct seeded or transplants.



Although you may think that everything is high tech around the farm, we often use the most basic methods.  Note the fork that we use to punch holes in the plastic.


After crawling on your hands and knees for the better part of a half day, all you want is a truck ride and a drink of water.  Thank goodness we have such a good crew.
