Yellow Onion sprouted in the pantry! Yay! It’s just hanging out until we get the veggie garden boxes built and filled with soil… which we start working on tomorrow (April 6th).
If anyone knows what variety it is, I’d be grateful to hear and record its name! Also, should we plant more of them…? Do they need to cross-pollinate…?

If sowing directly, aim to sow 0.98 inches (2.5 cm) deep and try to ensure a gap of at least 1.95 inches (5.0 cm).
Ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant - Onion is known for growing to a height of approximately 45.0 cm (that's 1.46 feet in imperial).
Your garden has full sun light, which is a great match for Onion.
Remember to water moderately.
Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (6) is within the ideal range for Onion. The recommended range is between Zone 3 and 10.
A soil ph of between 6.0 and 7.0 is ideal for Onion as it does best in acidic to neutral soil so test your soil acidity often.
