Yesterday I tapped 16 sugar maple trees and today I planted onion seeds. February 20th and I am thinking I should have started them a week ago. I ordered my seeds from FEDCO and I planted 2 types of yellow storage onions, 1 type of red onion, leeks, shallots, and bunching onions. My dilemma is, do I put a heating pad underneath? I've read that heat helps seed starting a lot. So I'm giving it a try. When I Googled onion seed starting I was pleasantly surprised when I was brought to a MOFGA article by Jean English. Here's the article: http://www.mofga.org/Publications/ArticlesforReprinting/StartOnionsFromSeedNow/tabid/1066/Default.aspx
Let's hope for a good garden season. It's been a dry winter and I'm hoping we won't have a dry summer.
Happy Seed Starting,
