Onion Sets

I love onions, so this time of year I purchase "onion sets" to plant in the garden. Pictured above is a newly planted bed of onions with a "set of onions" to be planted (and some well used gloves.) I have 2 sets of Red Onions, 2 White Bermuda, and 1 set of Yellow 1015s. Usually the onion sets have roots which are dried out so it takes several weeks for the onions to produce new roots and start growing again. The onions pictured have some fresh roots, which I think may be an advantage. Some of these onions will be harvested green and most will be in the ground until the tops dry, in early summer.
