Questions about growing onions and garlic
For the first time, this year I planted some onions and garlic. They seem to be coming up quite nicely. I have a few questions, though:
1) Some of the onion sets I planted specifically for scallions, so I planted them deeper and closer together. Can I harvest the resulting scallions continually throughout the season? And should I cut them back to the ground each time?
2) Can I also harvest the scallions from the onions that I want to become "dry" onions, or should I just leave them alone?
3) Can I harvest the green parts from the garlic too? If so, can they be used just like scallions?
Thanks for any info.
