I'll give them a try? I don't know if non-signed up readers count?

I probably should have moderated the comments a little more often --- sorry to get everyone else's hopes up. And congratulations to Debbi, our most loyal reader! Email me your address and your bulbs will be in the mail tomorrow.

anna, have you ever thought of trying to pickle the top onions? It would still be a pain to peel, but these are probably what would make great pickled pearl onions.

The top bulbs are definitely edible, but are even smaller than our potato onions --- I don't think I could find time to peel them. Maybe if I liked pickled onions, I'd be tempted to try. :-)
