Water is useful when starting onions...Duh

This is to remind myself what a difference properly moistened starting mix makes.  These were both planted 2 weeks ago with roughly the same seeding rate.  The one on the right which looks sparse and has a few seedlings still just coming up was the first one I planted and I hadn't quite moistened the starting mix enough evidenced by the fact that the when watered the water pools on the top and takes a while to soak in.  I realized this before planting the second one and did a little more moistening for it and the water soaks in immediately.  I didn't realize it would make as much of a difference as it clearly did.
