Winter Onions

Finally lifted my winter onions.

I planted these in September 2013. Very slow to grow but now I have them drying on a bench in the greenhouse. This is the perfect location for onions as there is a  vented window right under the bench pushing air upwards, and the onions get a direct blast of sun from the roof.

Although from the same family, the opposite must be remembered for Garlic – keep them out of the sun and in cool conditions to dry them off and store.
