Garden questions...

I need to relocate asparagus plants is there a certain time of year I should do this? Right now they are about 2.5 feet tall.

Also, In the early spring I see gardens with onions that were obviously growing since last year. Can I use any variety of onion.

Typically my garden is small and I don't leave anything grow over winter. My son just bought a house and has plenty of room for a large garden so I"am expanding my horizons.

I just come here to sample the WHINE!!

Re: Garden questions...

I have 2 patches of onions from last year. One was re-planted with small bulbs from the year before. The other was planted with seeds. They are Burpee White Lisbon bunching onions. You can find them in most Burpee displays. They form bunches, and grow into big white scallions. You can use them any size, and most of the stem. Great in salads, cooking, and just eating.

Re: Garden questions...

For your asparagus we had to transplant ours we did it right after they sprouted up for the year dug the area up and replanted and were advised by a friend to allow the plants to reestablish themselves for 3 years before cutting any for eating just letting them grow. Ours were very young plants and are growing great.

For the onion I get mine onion sets from my local farm bureau generally fairly priced. I also use some sets from last years stock. I usually take about half early and use for scalons. It a good and rather easy vegetable to grow. If you have a small garden they take up little room and are a different site to look at then all the other vegetable. I would defenetly recommend adding them to your garden.

Don't tell fish stories where folks know you especially, don't tell them where they know the fish.
