Onion harvest underway

The tops of many of our overwintered onions have fallen, signaling that they are mature and have reached their final bulb size. We’re pulling these and measuring them, and will then let them dry down. This experiment has approximately 20 varieties planted at five different planting dates in both high tunnel and low tunnels, so there’s a lot of information out there! Not all of the onions look beautiful; several have bolted, as we expected they would. Stay tuned for more information soon…
