I started the Ishikura Bunching Onion seeds yesterday, so that they will be ready to transplant outside in early April.  Love these bunching onions because they can remain in the garden all summer long, and they will remain as straight bunching onions that will not form bulbs. They sometimes get up to 2" in diameter, but remain great for slicing in salads or soups.

Latest addition to my raised bed gardens. I received two 20-gallon mineral lick tubs that I will be using for container gardens to raise sweet potatoes this year. This should give me plenty of room for raising sweet potatoes without taking up room in my raised beds.

Started seeds today for bell, banana, and jalapeno peppers, as well as kale, swiss chard, and Chinese Broccoli. Covered them with a humidity dome and set them on a heat mat next to the bunching onions I planted last Friday (which have already sprouted).

I have been recommending mineral lick tubs since you first mentioned them.

It surprised me how many beef farmers/ranchers have them that they want to give away to just get rid of them.  At 20 gallons, the tubs hold 2.5 cu ft of potting soil (MM).

The onion seeds that I planted last Friday sprouted yesterday, and are ready to start growing.  I multi-sow bunching onions, so there are 3 or 4 seeds per cell on this 72-cell tray (the package had 300 seeds in it).

This sounds like a great idea! That got me thinking that I could make a couple of them into self-wicking tubs, and transplant the gooseberry plants into them. That would protect them from the rabbits that like to eat them them down every spring.

I have now been gifted six of the mineral tubs - 2 black, 2 orange, 1 yellow, and 1 white one. I am going to set two of them up for planting sweet potatoes, and two of them for planting zucchini squash. The other two I will put in storage until I need them for another project.
