Hi, all! I'm loving the fact that I'm getting into the real planning mode for this year's garden. Plants have been ordered, prep has begun, and the brain is starting to creak while slowly getting out of winter mode!
So...this year, among other things, I'm going to attempt to plant some onion plants (i.e. not sets or seeds) - Copra and Super Star. I don't have a ton of space or anything, but I think I can plan well enough to get a harvest to last me much of the year. Anyways, I'm curious as to what kind of fertilizing I should do prior to planting and immediately upon planting. I prefer to do everything organically, if possible, and I do have my own source of homemade compost to use for tea and the like. I'm in Northern VA (Zone 7A or thereabouts) and have fairly good soil - a mixture of native red clayish soil along with compost and organic planting mix that I've added over the last couple years.
So what does feedback the collective HG braintrust have to offer?
