It's getting about time to get the itch for early spring onion planting. I'm scratching already.

By the way don't be in too big of a hurry to plant out onions,.

David Payne ( in the butt) says polar vortex the last 10 days of Jan.

I try to put onions in the ground around mid to late Feb. Even then watch out for some late arctic plunge in early March. A**hole weather you know.
