I think my onions have done better this year than ever before. We don't use that many onions so I don't grow very many, about eighty in total, but it's great that the ones I have grown have done very well. The varieties I grew were Turbo and Red Baron, both from sets.
I've never had any success with red onions previously, but even they've done ok this year. Some are rather small, but still usable.
Once they've been lifted, I stack them in these trays to dry off.
The trays are ideal as they're stackable and they allow air to circulate the whole way around the onions. I got them from our local greengrocer.
The onions look much nicer once they've been cleaned up.
I had quite a few onions sending up flower spikes this year. They don't store well when this has happened so I shall have to watch for signs of them rotting as I don't know which ones have tried to flower and which ones haven't now.
Of course, there's also the shallot harvest, they've also done well. They've been dried out but are now waiting to be cleaned up.
