I'm growing 5 onions (Dakota Tears, Patterson, Amish Bottle Onions, Ailsa Craig, and Candy) and 1 shallot from seed. These Amish Bottle Onion seeds were the first to pop out. About 2 days before the others.

My Amish bottle onions seedlings are doing well. They’re in the front row. They’re the size of a fat toothpick. In a week, I will transplant them to my root trainers. I don’t plan to set them out in the garden until closer to the end of April so they reap the benefit of the warm house at night. We still get some cold spells until early May.

I do understand why people will grow sets. It’s easier to get a full sized onion back in colonial times when you didn’t have warm houses with lots of lighting to start your seeds in January.

I also planted a couple of sprouting bulbs in the garden for seed production. How is everyone else doing?

In a few weeks I start reconstructing my garden. There's removing some seedling apples that produce poor fruit. a mayhaw where fruit looks like a failure (may give it another year), moving a paw paw, digging and moving walking onions, other alliums, mint, blackberries, raspberries, black raspberries, sunchokes, (undecided on moving) grapes and blueberries, moving a "shrub" cherry rooting if it survived the winter, asparagus, etc...

Do you think that you'll have any bottle onion seed for trade this year?

I planted all of my Amish Bottle Onion bulbs so I should have lots of seeds. I think there will be around 35 plants producing seeds. Will post pictures later this season.

Meanwhile, the plants that I started from seed are looking good. Will transplant them into the garden in another 1-2 weeks.

A month since my last update. Here’s a picture of my onions growing. Most of them are for seed. There are a few plants that I’m trying to grow to a full sized bulb this year instead of growing from a set. Have to put a reminder in my calendar to start some seeds as sets so I don’t forget.
