Hey Jal, I have circled the wagons

The onions did great during the spring, summer, and are still going strong. During the summer they produced numerous bulbils. I saved several and put them in my greenhouse to dry, so I could store them.
Well, some began to sprout so I put planted them around some tomatoes that I have in the greenhouse for the fall/winter.

What do you think they will do in the greenhouse during the winter?

I suppose they will make some green onions for you.

I always plant some bulbils outdoors in the fall for some early green onions next spring.

They grow very fast. I just put these in the ground a few days ago. Great to have them available for cooking, or salads.

I guess I should have asked "How do you think they will do in the green house this winter?

I have zero experience with green house onions. We do expect a report.
