Onion Plants arrived

We received our onion plants Monday. Really nice plants. I think they were dug one day and we had them the next. The roots were not even dried out.
We started planting Tuesday morning, (with a short crew) only three people. But did almost finish. Planted all but three box's, but planted them Wednesday morning. Finished by 10:00 am.
I made the rows so they are a little crooked. But hey, you can plant more in a crooked row. So I have been told. Anyway all looks great. And guess what it rained Wednesday night, now how cool is that. I will wait to see a few new true leaves then will fertilize with some ammonia nitrate
We grow sweet onions so cant have any sulfur, sulfur makes them hot.
I took some photos with my cell phone, but they look like crap. I will take some better ones and post them later.
I have ordered all other seed and have received most of them. Only the pea seed from SeedWay has not arrived. I know it is early but if you don't order early you may not get the seed you want.
One of the other thing I noticed this year is the cost of seed has increased greatly.
Believe it or not the onion plants were cheaper this year for some reason and were better plants. (I be counting my blessings)
Had to order tractor fuel today, this is off road diesel $2.87.9 per. gallon. Boy I hate it when that happens. Later ya'll
