... has struck with the drying of the onions at the Thrifty Garden/Home. This year's crop yielded smaller onions compared to the bounty last summer .... but they are very tasty. Both red and Spanish onions will be savored as long as the storage lasts. We still have a few weeks to hope the walla walla onions get larger. They were planted by seed and are still growing showing no sign yet of withering or drooping green tops.
Soon my garlic shipment should arrive for fall planting ... then next summer we'll have garlicitis for sure (and maybe bad breath;). Now to build a better mouse (vole) trap ... I'm planning to make (with hubby's help) a raised bed with fine wire mesh at the bottom to deter the varmints from helping themselves to this prized crop.
