Thank you this is very helpful! I just started my onion seeds because the seed packet I bought was empty. Luckily, the new variety I bought is from the world record holding onion variety (17 pounds!!!). I'm hoping to grow some woppers too.Here's how big our onions were last year when I set them out and mulched them in with hay. They weren't very big at all 3, maybe 4 true leaves. We had a good onion year last year. Grew some whoppers, well in excess of 1 lb both yellow and white sweet Spanish. They require copious amounts of nitrogen to grow big and strong around here.
The two rows of freshly set out onions are on either side of my shadow. Picture is from 2nd of April 2022.

Sowed two flats last year, 1 yellow and 1 white sweet Spanish. This year the same but I added one flat of ruby (red).
Jesus is Lord and Christ 🙏❤️🇺🇸
I didn't mulch mine at all last time I grew them. I'll give that a try!
