Planting onions to save your greens and cabbage

  1. Thanks for sharing! They look beautiful. We have been using hoop tents successfully for a couple of years now to keep the bugs off our greens. But they are somewhat high maintenance with the wind, etc. So maybe next year I will try this onion method.

      1. We use all purpose garden fabric. It is a good middle-of-the-road protection against light frost (for the plants that need that), but still lets plenty of sun through, and keeps the pests off. So it is good overall for our cold short growing season climate and keeps the bugs off. Before we started using them we had lots of trouble with root maggots in the beets and turnips, leaf miners in the spinach, and cabbage worms on the cabbage.
