A couple of typhoons wiped out all the onions. They were sown again and subsequently wiped out be strong seasonal winds and rain.

Mistake: I decided to begin from seeds as opposed to already established bulbs from the farming store. The small seedlings could not handle the climate. I am using bulbs this year and so far all is well.
Resources

As an amateur farmer, I am constantly looking for information to make things easier, and to be more productive in my farms.

My best resource though is all of you REAL FARMERS out there. If you are growing onions, please take some time and post a comment with your thoughts, suggestions, constructive criticism, and links to useful sites.

Your input will be greatly appreciated not only by me, but anyone else visiting this page. Thanking you ahead of time for posting.

For now check out the following links, which I found to be very useful.
