Adventures in Farming: Onions

This year I took the risk of doing serious farming. I had postponed for a long time to participate in this venture but decided this was the year. Life is short so let’s take hold of every opportunity accorded to us.

To start off, I did a pilot project of onions on quarter an acre. I used Jambar F1 seeds from Seminis (cost around Ksh. 6800) of which were planted on this portion of the land.
