This is not my first ever onion growing, but it is my first harvest. Live and learn. I'm so pleased! Next year I will grow them again, and some red onions and sweet onions and...
I read that the time to harvest the entire crop is when half the onions have tops laying down. Well, 3/4 of my onions had tops laying down. I didn't know the onion tops fell over by themselves. When they first started to fall over, I blamed the deer! lol!
I know they have to cure in the dry shade. These will get the early morning sun so I will have to put up some cardboard to block it in the mornings. I have a monstera potted yesterday beside them that needs to sun blocked until the roots grow, anyway.
When can I braid the tops and hang them from the ceiling to dry?
