Today I started my onion seedlings. I am going with the old standard Copra for my yellow storage onions as I have done for several years. I am trying a new red onion, Rossa di Milano, which supposedly stores well also.
I also planted Megaton leeks. I've never had great success with leeks from seeds or sets, but might as well keep trying.
I have bought most of my seeds from FedCo this year. Typically, I buy from Johnny's but the FedCo prices are much cheaper and I was able to get most of my preferred varieties. Hopefully, I won't regret this change ...
I'm also trying a new seed starting medium called Light Warrior from Fox Farm. It has a pretty crazy looking bag. Seems like it is a lot richer than the mixes that I've used in the past, mostly coir and peat products.
I'm excited to get the garden started!
