Last summer I harvested all my onions and set aside the super small ones to use as onion sets this year. I prefer growing onions from seed, but figured I’d rather plant these than spend the time trying to cut them up. I planted them shoulder to shoulder and plan on harvesting many of them as green onions. I will leave some to see if they bulb up or if they try to set seed. Some of these onions were from seed that I sowed very closely just to produce small onion sets.
I love green onions and really like how set planted onions produce green onions really quickly. I have some in a planter in a sunny window that are almost big enough to start harvesting. Next year I hope to grow them all winter long so I can enjoy freely chopped onions with my breakfast regularly!
