Don't be distracted by the brown tips. These onions have grown a couple inches since being planted a week ago. I can't tell if it's weeds or tomatoes coming up there in the middle. I'll give it some time.
I ordered some seeds and plants online. The cool thing is that they wait to ship them until it’s time for you to plant. Click the image to the right to embiggen. I ordered the following varieties.
I'm not sure where the garlic is going. After the tomatoes and peppers grow up some I will plant a second planting of squash for ground cover and as a fall crop.
I began seeding this weekend. I started Lettuce, Celery, Chives, Spinach and Onions. To spread out the harvest I planted only about a quarter of my intended crop. I'll keep the seeds indoors until they get their second set of leaves.
I used starter soil. I don't expect it to hurt but I hope it helps.
