Onion Harvest

Red and whites
After pulling all of the onions about two weeks ago, I removed excess dirt and laid them out in plant trays lined with the Wall Street Journal.  The greens stay on for now and the trays have been placed in the dark and cool basement storage.I'll cut back the greens after about 3-4 weeks of drying out in the basement.

A few onions didn't make it through the harvest, the skins were not hardened sufficiently or bugs had started to get them. In cases where salvage was possible, I kept those but with the intent to use for immediate meals with onion.
