ONIONS - Allium cepa
. Sow seeds early in spring as soon as ground can be worked. Cover seed lightly. Keep ground well cultivated, and apply moisture during early growing period. When seedlings are 3 to 4" tall, thin them out so that mature bulbs do not touch one another. When bulbs reach maturity, bend down the tops to hasten ripening of onions for early harvest. Onion varieties have such a fine diversity in growing season and storage quality that it is possible for the home gardener to grow a supply of onions for use throughout the year. ONION STORAGE
: Hang bulbs in basket or net bags in cool (50°F), dark, dry location. Approximately 7000 to 8000 seeds per ounce or 245 to 282 seeds per gram.
