Heaving Onion Bulbs
I am preparing for my first onion harvest. I see both red and white onion bulbs raising about a third above ground, looking mature already. We have another week of rain coming - and it does not look like tops are going to fall over anytime soon.
Should I begin harvesting now, or will they be bigger and better if mulched until green tops fall over? If so, I'd rather wait.
fyi, I cut scapes as soon as they appeared,
and slugs ate the first set of outer leaves.
i have added compost occaisionally, but these big guys
push thru and seem to want to show off their progress!
Tell me what you'd do...
