I was cleaning out a portion of my garden bed and knew there were a couple of onions ready to harvest as I spied their signature periscope-like flowers marking their location above a sea of weeds, but there were many more than at first glance.

I guess some we shall eat and some we shall store for replanting in the fall. There are still a few big ones out there that I need to dig out and some leeks, too.

These were planted haphazardly in early March. I’m not sure they got enough water? They’re not as big as I was hoping. I think I will change the variety of yellow onion seeds I use next season.
