We stopped by the nursery and bought some onion plants. I was a tad suprised how many were sold in a "clump." Apparently, I forgot to get a picture of them but it is fine.
Before we got to work, I told Daddy it would be nice if I could get a little grid made to plant them since I hate having to measure and my squarefoot gardening book told us that we could get 16 onions in a square foot. Give Daddy a few minutes, some bamboo poles and some zipties and this is what he made. It was perfect and its simple to use.
