Another good rainy day chore. Joel spent the last two days out in the hoophouse bagging up our winter onions. We have had an incredible onion crop this year partly due to the regular rains. The season may have been hard on peppers and corn but the onions loved it. We'll have onions to sell at the winter market all winter long. These are Stuttgarters and we also have a small crop of Comreds, a red winter keeper, and some red cippolinis called Red Marble. We're taking the very last of the Ailsa Craigs to market this weekend. We are really pleased by how well they have stored. Sweet onions, like Walla Wallas are notorious for not being good keepers.
