Planting Onions, Shallots, and Leeks

Here at my Bedford, New York farm, this week's temperatures are a bit cooler, but excellent for planting more vegetables in the garden.

Yesterday, my gardeners planted the season's crops of onions, shallots, and leeks which were all started from seed in my greenhouse. The seeds came from Johnny's Selected Seeds, a source I've been using for years. Onions, shallots, and leeks are all part of the Allium family. They are hardy, thrive in full sun, and are easy to grow in a variety of soils and climates.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
