    You may be effected by weather a bit more than I am. Our weather is still cooler than yours. I did some checking and I believe you will be just fine planting your onion sets now. You will end up with a later crop than those around you but that’s ok. I’d also recommend mulching around your onions about 2-3 inches thick. This will aid in cooling the soil. You also want to maintain a regular watering program. Those things in mind, you should be fine. Thanks for watching, and good luck!

    Do you know if there would be a problem planting onions right now (mid May)? I’m in Georgia and didn’t think I was going to do onions, but now i’m going to try. From what I’ve read starting a little late isn’t necessarily bad, but I will just be behind. I bought a few nice looking sets and will be planting soon. Thanks for you videos.

    Yeah, I realized that as well. I appreciate you taking the time to share that information.
    I used a really small amount of sawdust for that and I like to add a product called “Milorganite” (5-0-0) once in a while, so that will hopefully delete any demand of N to the soil.
    You have piqued my interest though and I’m likely to return to using jute twine or something.

    If that is fresh sawdust, it will leach nitrogen from the soil as it breaks down, leaving less nitrogen for the lettuce. Lettuce uses nitrogen for leaf production. Next time you might want to use something like vermiculite that is inert yet will clearly mark your spot. Hopes this helps. ~Jeri
