  • Although we’re in the midst of winter, it is never too soon to think about next growing season. This is particularly true if you want to grown onions.

    Onions are a good crop for Kentucky farmers. Typically, in late winter it takes eight to 10 weeks to produce a reasonably sized transplant. If you want to plant in late March or the beginning of April, you should have seeded your transplants in late January.

    If you have not already seeded, it’s not too late for an onion crop this year. You can purchase transplants.
