Three or 4 times a year we harvest and process our green onion patch usually from 4 to 6 sq foot of onions are all we need and we use alot.  For us its a fun activity.  Here is a report on February's crop.  This is one thing that we haven't bought any of in years all from our garden.    http://cappyandpegody.blogspot.com/2015/03/rotating-our-green-onions-or-something.html

I don't know why your link did not highlight.  I went to your web site, re-copied the address and posted here.

I am new to square foot gardening, this is my second year coming up.  I planted some onion sets that I purchased somewhere but after planting them I just kind of forgot them.  The bed has been abandoned over the winter.  Maybe I should go back there and look and give it another chance.

Cappy - what a beautiful, bountiful harvest.

I love my green onions and have a small patch (12" x 18") in one of my boxes.  It has been there for years.  Like you I use them in almost every thing I cook.  I usually just harvest the greens but sometimes pull the entire plant.  When I do I stick the roots with a little bit of the white back in the soil.  New plant.  

Smile


BTW - they grow and I harvest year round.

My, My - learn something new every day - didn't realize that there is a particular onion that is what you all are calling spring onion or green onion.  I thought that the green-topped onions in the store were just baby plants of the larger onions.


This is a particular species,isn't it ,Allium fistulosum,  OK - so now I need to check out the seed displays in our stores or need to order some on-line because it sounds like something I want in my garden.  


Thanks folks

Post  Cajun Cappy 5/16/2015, 4:08 pm

I posted this else where I think but I figured I'd share it here since its the season and all.  We grow our green onions around 9 months out of the year The dorment time is now.  In the next few days I will harvest them but instead of re planting the onion bulbs will summer in an onion sack in the closet and be replanted in early september.  Here is a post about one full cycle.  We havent bought them in many a year.

Hi Cappy,
 Don't know why but I never thought of freezing onions. Always thought of them as a root cellar item, not too many of those down here. I tried some in the garden this year with OK results, nothing like you had.
I'll give it another try this fall.
 Thanks for sharing.

Cappy, could you please  post a photo for us of your green onion/shallots. Now I am very curious.

Cappy, The green onions in your blog is what I also call green onions. I started them from seed and they languished in a pot for months. A few days ago, I dumped the pot, gathered the poor things, separated them, gave their heads and feet a little trim and replanted them in replenished mix in the same pot. They have new shoots now. And, I don't even like green onions!

Hi Cappy,
 Since we are basically the same zone what variety do you plant?
 I would really like to do the same as you with a recurring onion harvest every year,
 Thanks
