Gathering Onions

onions

The photo of the day is my Onion harvest. They’ve been drying in the greenhouse and are now ready for storing. They are pungent! Super strong and very juicy. Tissues at the ready. Remember to store them in a ‘breathable’ container. Baskets with big gaps are perfect.

    They look great. When did you plant them?

    Beautiful onions. You must be pleased with your harvest.

    Lovely. Onions are some of my favourite things to grow and harvest. They are easy, we always use them and they look lovely hanging up in the autumn. I think it will soon be time to plant more. That’s another thing I like about them – that they go into the ground when nothing else does, and then sit there all winter waiting to make the most of any early spring sun. Wonderful.

    Hi Angela, I put in around March time as sets. I also put in some ‘starts’. http://mytinyplot.com/planting-out/not-onion-sets-but-starts/
    But you know they were the ones that went to seed pretty early. The sets were more successful in my garden.

    Hi Jean, Yes I’m pleased they are a good size. Not too small and not too big. We don’t need huge onions in our house. Who does? Restaurants?
