Their response time is excellent. They will set you up for what they consider optimum ship time for your zipcode or if you like you can specify when you would like the shipment. Last year they were able to ship all my varieties at once with only one exception - the Walla Wallas were evidently in very wet soil. That is the first time they shipped anything late - it showed up a week later. I've been using them for years.

Folks tis is worth your time, planting your own onions can't be beat, have fresh garden grown onions all winter long, and the spring onions (your previous year growth) is extrordinary in taste,mike

Jon, for long storage onions,(like large white or yellow) big daddy or first edition are best by my books, but you need to look for onions that are considered "long day" in Michigan, for tomatoes and peppers, I have an abundance of sweet pepper seeds and a ton of easy to grow tomatoes, brandywine and rutgers would be good choices if you are looking for tomato sauce and stewing tomatoes, for paste, I have 8 or 9 varieties, 4 have limited amounts of seeds I could give ya, but hel, you plant 4 or 5 plants, and you will have enough seeds to last ya a lifetime,mike

I agree on the seed approach. But I also like "no muss no fuss", so I buy my onions (this years plants) from Dixondale Farms. They are shipping right now. In my opinion, it's to late to plant seeds and get a good harvest of large bulbs. They need large tops to get large bulbs, so they need to be planted earlier rather than later. Onions bulb as a result of the the hours of sun per day, not how long they are in the ground. Get them planted so they can have the largest green tops possible, before the bulbing process commences.
