Sometime around noon yesterday, a wind came up which blew our gray, humid air away and brought us a gorgeous, dry, sunny afternoon.
I'd been putting off harvesting our onions but this perfect day for pulling them and laying them out to dry for a few hours was just too good to miss.
These are onions from two 4' x 8' beds. I thought there should be more but considering that I've not purchased any onions since spring and have just gone out to the garden and pulled up a fresh onion anytime I needed one, I guess this harvest is decent. I'll be interested to see what the total weight of them is when they're dried.
The red ones didn't get very big nor are the yellow ones as large as some years. But a wind storm flattened the stalks of all the onions mid-summer so that may have affected their growth, too.
I left them out there until late afternoon and then brought them inside for the night. More drying out of the direct sun scheduled for the next several days and then they can be bagged up and stored.
One more crop out of the garden. Startin' to look a little bare out there.
