There was a thread on here a little while back(I'm too lazy to find it) where me and another person disagreed about putting lime on onions. You know how sometimes you just know something and your brain doesn't immediately pull to the front of your mind why you do it that way? Today at lunch I was eating a really good sweet onion. First thing that popped into my head is.....they must have really thrown the lime to this onion. That's when the lightbulb went on in my brain :bouncy: and I remembered why I add lime. I was beginning to think that it had burned out. One of the tiny little towns I grew up near was famous for it's onions. People would drive 50 miles or more to buy sweet Noonday onions. I think the little town claims to be the onion capital(why does every tiny town need a claim to fame?). The way they get the onions so sweet is to pour lots of lime onto our slightly acid soil(lots of pine trees). If they lime it correctly(far enough before planting, put on correct amount) the onions are almost sweet as an apple. As I recall....the land for the most part was a sandy loam.....also wonderful for growing roses.
