Plant Onions at the End of Gardening Rows

When planting your seed rows, plant a few onions on each end of the row so you can tell where the rows of slow germinating seeds are. By the time the onions are ready to pull, the seeds will have sprouted.

Also, onions are supposed to repel insect pests.

A "free" way to plant onions is to save the part the roots come from-- you don't eat that anyway-- and plant it. It won't grow a bulb but it will produce a stem that looks like a green onion. Trim and use in cooking. It will keep sprouting. This works with long green onions too; plant the bottom two inches and cook the rest.
