Normal Onion growth/behavior or not?

tn_veggie_gardner(7)April 30, 2009

I have some Texas sweet onions growing this year. They were planted as seedlings I bought from HD, as mine from seed did not work out. I planted them about a week and a half ago and they are growing quite fast! My question is this...some of the top parts (stalks/chives or whatever they're called), as they get over a foot tall are bending over. They still look quite healthy, but several have bent over like that now. Do I need to just ignore this and let them grow, cut these bent over stalks, etc.? Please let me know. Thanks! - Steve

Bending is normal. So long as they are still getting sun, no worries.

This is what they look like. I'm still guessing they're fine after 2 days straight of rain so far.
