Give special thanks this holiday season for the bounty and selection of food options that farmers provide for us and our families throughout the year.

Fall floral mums will add color and brighten up the November season décor.

Contact Dixondale farms, the nation’s largest onion transplant supplier in Carrizo Springs, Texas for the first wave of plantings from now through mid-January.

To significantly increase onion bulb formation, place a band of phosphorus two inches below the planting zone. Cover with soil then plant the onion transplants.
