Texas Sweet Onions in Nashville!

Today I planted Texas Sweet Onions. We chose the front bed in front of the rental house for this. Already planted there is our Sage, Rosemary and a bunch of Wild Onions we transplanted from the yard. I used John Jeavon's offsetting planting techniques from his sustainable Biointensive Mini-Farming method. Each plant is still the specified 4 inches apart from each other and we were able to get 13 rows in the space we would normally have only put 6. This helps protect the soil. conserve water and allows me to double my harvest in my available space. This is the first time I have used his techniques and I am really excited to see how the garden grows!
