Harvesting & Storing Onions

This season I had a great crop of onions! The bulbs were big and they taste absolutely delicious!

My Onions

I harvested about 20 onions. I have other onions still growing. This year I staggered my plantings. Staggered planting is planting the same plants or seeds on different dates throughout the season, so that you can enjoy a longer period of fresh vegetables. This is helpful, especially for homesteaders, so that you can eat from the garden longer, it allows you to harvest a vegetable and replant a new crop to maximize your garden's output, you don't use all of your garden space for one crop and thus can grow a variety of plants, and it makes harvesting easier by not being overwhelmed by a big crop that must be harvested and stored.
