'Mushy' Onions from sets...Help!
As an "experiment" ...Last late fall I planted some yellow (Walla Walla?) sets. They came up fine and grew throughout our cool wet spring. A few week ago they put up flower shoots which I trimmed off. It is still cool here...today will be in the low 80's. OK, they still look good and are trying to bulb...however every one that I have pulled has a mushy immature bulb.
These are my questions...
1) Am I just being impatient and the bulbs will firm up given more time?
2) If not, what caused this? Like I said this was kind of an experiment.
I could use the space they are in, so if the crop has failed, I will pull them ASAP.
Thanks in advance!
