onions…

onions14 …and lots of them.  i pulled all the storage onions along with the few remaining spanish onions.  after letting them sit on top of the soil for a couple of days, i built a drying rack from salvaged 2×4’s and chicken wire.  later i’ll re-purpose the rack as a grazing frame for the chickens, so they’ll have a regular supply of greens and won’t be able to pull out the roots.

if anyone knows more about red onions and their growing habits i’d like to hear.  i planted the sets at the same time as the others, however they are no bigger than shallots.  they are firm and are great for roasting or chopping up into salads but far too small.

my garlic are dried and going into storage.
