Any harm to leaving onions in the ground?
I've been growing copra onions for several years, and have always followed the instructions to "harvest when most of the tops have fallen over." Well they are starting to fall over now, and it occurred to me (eureka!) that I may not *have* to harvest them right now.
Is there any harm in leaving them in the ground awhile? First, I'd like to get their maximum growth, and second, I'm looking for a couple days with no chance of rain so I can sun cure them before moving them indoors where I'll dry them some more.
I've already been taking a few here and there to eat, but most of these are for storage.
