onion harvest mistake
My dd was helping me harvest my huge, beautiful onions today. I told her to cut off the green tops and she left only about an inch or so of the top of the bulb on. I'm looking at the onions and the stems are so moist and big I'm wondering if this will cause spoilage now?
I'm curing them on a wire shelf elevated on blocks on a covered porch. Any thing I can do to make them last longer/keep better?
Likewise, I had harvested all my softneck garlic about 10 days ago. Then I read on a blog that you must harvest it at exactly the right moment and now I'm wondering if I did it a little too early. I had a terrific crop last year, it cured well and lasted until it ran out in February. But maybe I waited a little longer?
thanks so much for any advice
