Tonight after work I planted my final onion variety for this year. I set in 10 "Candy" onion plants that I had purchased at the Farmer's Market. I have grown this sweet variety before and it has done well for me. Being a sweet onion, it is not a keeper. Because of this, it is the variety that I begin to harvest and cook with mid-Summer and on.
After I finished planting the "Candy" onions I returned to potting up my dahlia tubers. I was able to get an additional 22 planted tonight, for a total of 73 potted. A good start but still a long ways to go!
