I was looking at the memories section of my Facebook page today and was reminded of the beautiful crop of onions I harvested from my garden in 2011. They were white onions and they were big and flavorful. If I remember correctly, they lasted into December and provided an added seasoning for many meals.
It was a nice memory, especially since this year’s onions were a bust. They started out nice enough, but we got way too much rain in May and June for them to survive. By the time the photo below was taken at the end of June, you could already see the onions were rotting in the ground. There really wasn’t much I could with them.
Hopefully I’ll have better luck next year, provided Mother Nature also does (or maybe doesn’t do) her part.
