We planted onions and carrots on April 7th. We planted yellow onion bulbs three inches (75 mm) deep and a half inch (12 mm) apart so we could harvest them as scallions. We didn’t use all of them, however, and the remaining onions grew bulbs like two we harvested today. The larger onion is about two inches (50 mm) across.
I also pulled a danvers carrot; it is two inches wide by seven inches long (50 mm by 175 mm). This is a good carrot variety for heavy, clay soil like ours.
We planted evergreen heshiko bunching onions at the same time as the carrots and yellow onion bulbs. They have been growing all summer and now are providing us with scallions.
I probably planted them a bit too closely together.
