…but these red storage onions will perk up our fall and winter meals.Speaking of experiments, I’m also trying a fall planting of potatoes. Last month I was faced with a large empty bed and a bag of sprouted organic potatoes and I thought, what the heck? So far, so good – they’re about 8-10 inches tall and look happy, I’m just a bit worried that the coming rains might do them in. I’ll keep you posted.
I harvested my onions recently and am pleasantly surprised by how well they turned out. I experimented with growing them from seed this year, which I’d never done before, and I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical while I was transplanting those piddly little green shoots that they would ever amount to anything, but they actually did!
