Onion Project....A Bust?

My onions are looking more and more pathetic. I think it's because the grow lights in the garage aren't strong enough for them. I put them outside today for a little bit for some sunshine.

I won't totally give up on them yet but they're looking more yellow. The saga continues....

I don't think they look that bad. I've seen onion starts come from the store that look like that. Once you can get them planted outside, I think they'll be just fine.

Hmmm, the yellowing makes me think they may have been over watered. Onions also require a lot of nitrogen, although I wouldn't think the small seedlings would be needing it. If they are quite wet, I think I'd let them dry out a bit and then water them with a very weak fish emulsion, maybe 1/4 strength.

I grew onions from seed last year. I have to say that they were a pain in the behind. They took a lot of time and then my crop was the smallest onions that I have ever grown. This year it is sets and plants. I may try growing them from seed again...but not this year too much to do with the plots.

Don't give up yet, they may work out well for you!!

If I recall correctly, onions aren't supposed to get a lot of water. Maybe it's too wet?

I still have to start my onion seeds. I hope yours comes back to life!
