How do you know when onions are ready to pull?
Well so far I've been pretty durn successful with onions this year, which is a complete turnaround for me. I found Candy onion at Atwoods and planted the little "sets", or whatever they're called. (Dawn I know we had that conversation about what to call them but I can't remember) So now, several of them are starting to have fat stems, maybe as big around as a 50-cent piece. (Do they still make those? I haven't had one in a long, long time) I don't want to pull them too soon. I want a nice big bulb. Do the tops start dying back or something, to signal that they're done? I've never been able to get this far with onions before so I don't know what to do.
