Hi Kadee,

why do you plant and not seed the onions ans why you cut off
the tops of the plants and how do you cut off the tops!

Re: Setting Season Of The Vidalia Sweet Onions
Hi Theo,
since you asked me in English, I will answer you in English.
The germination of the Vidalia onion seeds is so sporadic
that it is better to set them out so the spacing is correct.
In this picture you see chopped of bundles and un-chopped
ones. The un-chopped are all laid out in a line and then
someone comes along with a machete (very large knife) and
chops them all off. I will take a picture for you tomorrow
of one of the workers chopping them off.
The tops are chopped off because the plant would be to tall
with the tops on and would fall out of the whole. The whole
is only 1.5 inches deep.
