Onions in 112 Days

Alex's basketball injury did not stop him from planting.

The seeds are in the ground! Last week we planted our first onions, scallions, and parsley in the Macalester College greenhouse.  It is hard to imagine these seeds will pop up with the feet of snow  and negative degree winds outside!  Nevertheless, spring is in the air, the days are getting longer, and pretty soon we’ll be up to our ears in onions, scallions and greens.
