Also, last year, my onions were fantastic. I bought seedlings (already planted) but this year I bought onion sets. I shared them with two others and they had the same experience. Also, I didn't hill my potatoes until late as I wasn't here. So I only got about 10 - 12 lbs. I didn't thin my carrots, either, so that may be why. Not all were deformed, but a lot were. Going to add more peat next year, too.
