Yesterday, I got to plant some vegetables. I intended to plant peas, onions, and carrots, but I ran out of time to plant the peas. I'll have to plant them later in the week.
I bought the garlic and onion sets at the grocery store. I was excited to see that could buy onion sets there. I bought red, white, and yellow onions. The garlic is organic so it hasn't been treated with spouting retardants.
I had a couple of onions that I missed last year. I planted them too late, so they never got very big. I dug them up and planted them with the onion sets.
To plant the onion sets, I put on a garden glove and poke 2" holes in the soil, about 3" apart. Then I drop in a tiny onion. Finally, I cover up the hole and water the planted onions.

I live in historical neighborhood in Indianapolis. I have a small yard in which I have traditionally planted perennial flowers. I love to cook and I want to eat more locally grown organic produce, so I decided (GASP!!!!) to dig up a part of my flower garden to plant fruits and vegetables. In this blog, I will share what I'm learning along the way.
