What to do with these onions?
This is the first year we planted a row of onions. About August-Sept, the tops died and dried up, and we were going to dig them up later. But......the summer reved up again, and they all put up new beautiful green tops. I picked them today, but it hit me afterwards, that maybe I was supposed to leave them in the ground until these second tops died??? It's supposed to finally turn cold this week, so I was afraid they would freeze.
Can you leave big onions in the ground over winter?? (zone 5). Seems like they would get frozen and mushy.
These ones that I pulled up today....should I hang them on the porch, until the green part is dried again?? Thanks for your help.
