This is my first year growingThis is my first year growing a good amount of onions from sets in my garden. I am zone 5A, and planted white yellow and red onions (about 75 of each) I am noticing that in one garden the 20 onions in it are thriving, and in my other one they are only doing fair... both gardens have the same soil and were prepared identically, and all onions were planted at the same time. The ones doing fair have the stalks rotting, and when I pulled a couple samples, the skin was very slimy, but the bulb was fine (and tasted fantastic). Any Ideas on what may be causing the rot? Thank you!
