I was just at our local farm stand and they had a bin full of onion sets! Onion sets are basically baby onions that you plant and will grow into full size onions. They are usually pretty cheap, less than two bucks a pound, and are really easy to plant and grow. We grew quite a few onions this spring, and are still enjoying those, but I don’t think its enough to tie us through the winter, and these aren’t going to help that situation much, as they will establish themselves over the next few weeks, before it gets too cold, and then go dormant till it warms again in spring, at which point they will be ready to harvest pretty quickly.
We will be covering them in low lying row cover to keep them as warm as we can and hopefully we will have a few baby onions and scallions to play with this winter.
