Here is part four of my onion movie - how to grow killer onions - hardening off and transplanting into the garden

We spent all day yesterday in the garden.  I finally transplanted my onions that I started from seeds on Valentine's Day and made a movie about it.

I know some of you have been following my instructions and have been waiting eagerly for more.  So here's the next installment: hardening off your plants and transplanting them into the garden with my awesome method (swishing roots in water bucket).  Watch here:

If you missed the other parts, you can catch them here:

Part One - how to start onions from seed

Part Two - what to do once the seeds germinate

Part Three - how to fertilize and give them a haircut

Enjoy, and let me know how your onions are doing!  Feel free to post a picture of them on my Facebook page so we can admire them!


  1. I am so jealous of your soil. I have to get out of here. I am never going to feel fulfilled until I can get some good dirt. I have to garden in horse tanks because our soil is impossible heavy clay. I call it pulverized rock. Working on it....

    I never saw that technique of putting the seedlings in water to separate them out. I'm going to do that with my vietnamese hot peppers and my japanese bell peppers. Thanks!

    1. I have worked on my soil over a decade. I make a lot of compost from the goats' manure and bedding!

    2. Well, you are an inspiration!

  2. P.S. I have been using your soap and have fallen in love with it. While it hasn't eliminated my dry skin it sure is softening when I use it. Such high quality. I'm telling all my friends!
