Evergreen Bunching Onions-December 20th Planting

With the bunching onions, you can cut off about an inch on the end and trim the roots back. Then you can plant this nub and it will regenerate itself. I planted about 20 of these nubs today. And I picked about 20 nice green onions yesterday. This year I planted some seeds in March, and then randomly  set them out in a bed. They are really foolproof little plants. The only thing I did was weed them all year. Next year I want to plant them in rows in trenches and mound them up to blanch them as they grow. I think the idea is to plant them in deep trenches, because the white edible part can really be lengthened by burying them.
