Onions!

We grew onions this year, and here is what I learned - with thanks to garden.org's Learning Library:

  • Onions can be picked and eaten at any stage.

  • When onions stop growing, the leaves lose their green color and flop over, putting the last of their energy into the bulbs.

  • Leave the bulbs in the ground another 10 days after the flop, to mature fully. Not longer than 2 weeks, to avoid rotting.

  • Harvest them on a sunny day; you don't want them to be too wet.

  • Let them sit in the sun after you pull them out to kill the roots.
