Growing Onions – Container Gardening

Growing onions, container gardeningI discussed on a previous post about growing on Ginger but here you can see we have also done it with onions. Most of the onions we find in our local supermarket I believe come from Thailand but either way they are still undersized. Planting them out for a couple of weeks helps grow them on but more importantly get in the habit of it with a lot of your vegetables you start to see that your saving money on a regular basis as 3 onions you normally buy from the store become 1 as you just cycle your plants as and when you need them.

For sustainable living in the Philippines these things are very important as I can see the advantages of having very small scale farming in poor communities having a very positive affect by growing on as well as producing small scale crops.
