Community Onion Plant Order

Once again the NWFP and Extension office are taking a group onion plant order for Dixondale Onions.  A group order makes onion plants more affordable for all of us while supporting local food production.  If you want to order, here are the varieties:
1.  Copra - yellow, storage onion
2.  Rec Zeppelin - red, storage onion
3.  Candy - yellow intermediate onion, not long storage
4.  Lancelot Leeks - great for soups, salads

We order them in bunches - 50 -60 plants in a bunch.  If you only want 10 or 1/2 a bunch, I will pair you up with someone else.

Deadline for orders is Tuesday, March 10.
Delivery is usually the first week of May with pick up at the Extension office.  Cost will vary depending upon how large the onion order is.  The more we order, the cheaper the cost.  The last couple of years cost has been between $4 and $8 per bunch.

To order:  Call 218-387-3015.

If you call or email me, make sure you receive a response back so you know I have received your order.
