I was out the other morning doing my garden walkabout when I noticed that the onions were flopping over.
I wandered over to pull one out to see what was up.
I next thing I knew I was yoinking onions out and piling them up.
A great big pile of onions.
(Funny how I can get distracted...)
Thankfully the day promised to be hot and breezy with no rain in sight so I went and hung them up along the fence line taking care to cover them with the leaves to protect them while they dried out a bit.
The next day I set up the screen door (that we never installed). It's perfect for drying the onions. I transferred the onions onto the screen and left the shed doors open for a few days.
They'll hang out in there for about a month as they slowly dry.
This is my second year with Copras. I've grown sweet onions and torpedo onions. Copras are perfect for us. Not too big. And they store well in the garage over winter.
And that's my onion crop for the year!
