I am going to try some red potatoes this year. Is now a good time for red onions?

Teresa- about your grass, the most popular grasses in this area are bermuda and fescue. However, they are very different. Bermuda doesn't like shade or cold. And it is the worst weed ever if it gets in the flower beds or garden. It is a warm season grass and doesn't start growing until some time in april. Fescue is a cool season grass but tolerates the hot summer heat. It stays green most or all of the year where bermuda dies and turns brown. Or tan. If you have shade, mix creeping red fescue in with kentucky 31 tall fescue. The red fescue 'creeps' in and fills gaps and does well in the shade. Fescue is more drought tolerant as well. As long as it is established. Mow it at 3 inches. Now is the time to sow your seed. Wait til the end of march for bermuda. You should aerate the soil so the seed has holes to fall into when you sow it. Get the seed at a co-op. The popular brands at Lowes or walmart will grow and jump quick but at least 50% will die out. Also get a 13-13-13 fertilizer. That will get you going in the right direction. Good luck!
