30 July 2011 Spanish Onions. 30 July 2011 Onions
The two rows of onions were pulled today (about 60 onions). Time to pull is determined by the stalks falling over and going soft just above the bulb. They will be allowed to dry in the Sun for about two days then will be trimmed for storage in the cold room. Spanish onion don’t store as well as stronger onions, but two to three months storage time is possible, depending somewhat upon the temperature and humidity.

those onions look wonderful!! When do you plant onions? I have some red and white onions I need to plant. I also have shallots.
Your garden is amazing!! Thanks for sharing. Those pics makes me want to plant a lot of onions. We eat them in everything!

Onions are planted as early as he ground can be worked in the Spring. This applies to all the onion types, (except for garlic which should be planted in the Fall). Plant, keep the weeds out and let them grow. Six inch centers are about right between plants.
Does this mean the onion sets I have now aren't any good?
Not sure what is meant by sets. Multiplier onions might produces some table greens before Winter. All said, it doesn't take much effort to plant a row and note the outcome.
