onion harvesting question
Apologies for asking a basic question that has probably been answered before somewhere in the annals of the forum....
I have a small patch of yellow Stuttgarter onions that seem to have done quite well (planted from sets). At the moment all the stalks have fallen over, but are still green. I can see the shoulders of nice-sized bulbs in the soil. Can I harvest these now? Should I? Can they stay in the ground longer? I was expecting to harvet them once the stalks turned yellow/brown, but I don't want to prolong things if they should be pulled up now.
Also, one, and only one plant has bolted and is now flowering - does this mean anything? Thanks!
