Curing the potato onions
They'll lose some weight once
they cure and I cut off the leaves, but right now I'm very pleased with
the yield from our potato
started out with 8 ounces...and ended up with 8 pounds.
All are going back in
the ground this fall. If they grow as well next year as this
year, we should harvest 128 pounds of onions and be able to stop
starting the vegetables from seed. Maybe in two years, I'll have
potato onions to give away to my favorite blog readers.
The garlic isn't quite
ready to bag, but is dry enough that I felt okay about doubling up two
racks to give our potato onions a spot to cure. Our seed onions
need a few more weeks in the ground, so by the time that harvest comes
in, our curing
racks should be
empty and ready to reuse. Now I'm looking forward to the harvest
rather than dreading the chore of finding curing areas!
Our chicken waterer makes care of the flock so
easy, you have time to grow your own vegetables.
