Harvest Monday, Aug 6th, 2012

This week, last of the red onions got harvested.  They were bulbs bought from Menards and I think the results were better than last years.  Last year, I got the onion bulbs from Walmart and most of the onions produced flowers and as a result onions were small and 'woody'.  This year, very few out of the entire set produced flowers.  Onions were mostly medium sized, with a few large ones. 

To visit other gardeners produce for the week, go to Daphne's Dandelions Harvest Monday.

  1. I think that is a lovely harvest. I especially like the onions. I'm going to try growing some for fall planting in Mobile, Alabama.

    1. Thank you! I didn't know you grow onions in the fall....

  2. Nice harvest! Are your Thai chilis hot? Mine are so mild, I need to figure out if it was the seed or maybe too much water? I try and water when the leaves get droopy because I heard that jalapenos won't get hot if watered too much, and I wondered if maybe that held true across the pepper family.

    1. I haven't planted thai chilis this year! Just Cayenne and Kung Pao. I had the same problem with Thai chillies, they were tiny and mild. Both of the latter varieties are larger and also spicy.
