We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Onion Seeds are Germinating

My onion seeds are germinating. I have never tried to start onion seeds indoors for transplant in the garden. It took them about a week to germinate  and so far so good. I purchased the starter blocks from Burpee at one of the box stores. I had never used these before and typically would start seeds in a starter mix. These blocks should make transplanting easier.


  1. I am so late getting mine started. I wasn't going to start any from seed this year. Then I received a pack of seeds from the Seeds of the Month Club. I am planning to start a few things tomorrow.

  2. Typically, I have not started seeds indoors for the past 10 years. But now that I am reading your blog and the other gardening blogs, all of you have inspired me. I still have the grow light that I installed in the basement that Martha Stewart provided directions for years ago. I will probably go downstairs and see if it still works or if it needs new fluorescent bulbs.
