I don't notice transplant shock with onions.

If fall planting onion seeds, I recommend a short day onion. Something like Walla Walla.

anyway, i was just wondering how real life this idea was. i like the idea of digging large circular swales on flat terrain because it satisfies a subtle need i feel for things to be circular. i just like circular things i guess. but regaurdless, i feel as though it would trap more water into less area, has applications for growing food for animal and human consumption, increases soil fertility, a source of timber, a structual pen for animals.
has anyone seen anything like this? i was looking at a picture in a forum about airwells
anyway, that was the inspiration, i saw that and said, hey, those rocks should be a swale and that whole thing should be a lot bigger.
