Onions have sprouted! The onion seed flats were lucky to spend a few warm-ish days outdoors in the sunshine, but right now they are back inside the house, waiting for this rain to go away. Pretty soon the seedling bench in my office with the toasty-warm heating mat is going to be full of baby tomatoes and peppers, which means the onions will have to go elsewhere. So, the construction project for the day is building a couple of cold frames so that the little onions and parsley seedlings have an outdoor sheltered place to be - until we put up the hoophouse, that is. That's construction project #2.
