Onions, Peas and Potatoes – The Perfect Combo

The trees are budding and leafing out here in the Missouri Ozarks. This  is the perfect time to plant onion plants and sets. The Amish in our area plant their onions shallow to produce bigger bulbs. I will be using this method this year. If they can do it, so can I!! Plant the onions no deeper than 3/8″ – 1/2″ deep. Make sure you keep the soil moist, for much milder tasting bulbs.

This the time to plant garden, snap and snow peas. Cascadia and Sugar Anne are the two varieties I will be growing this year. The cooler weather makes for crisp,  sweet peas and a light frost will not bother them.

It is not too late to plant your potatoes! Cut your seed potatoes now and allow the cuttings to harden off for a few days. Either plant directly in the ground or plant in cages or stacked tires.
