I pulled my yellow onions yesterday and laid them out to dry. We subsequently read that you should wait for all the tops to fall over for maximum yield, but many of these Big Daddy onions are already huge. We’ll leave the red onions to fall over on their own.
Lee and I were pretty happy with our harvest until we realized it was less than a month’s supply for us. Onions are a staple around here. If we are going to become onion self-sufficient, we’ll need to plant at least 8 rows in the future. Better luck at catching gophers would help too.
