Harvest July...part one!

Time to clear out the beds in anticipation of the fall garden.  I'm starting with these onions...I was going to over winter them, but I pulled a couple out to use and a few were starting to rot, so I decided to pull them now and get what I could from them.  I'm drying them on the fence for a day or so. There's a mix of red and yellow onions here.

Next came the leeks.  I'm very proud of these, even though they are about 1/4 of the size of some that I've seen in pictures.  But, I started these guys from SEED!  Wowzer!  The roots on these are amazingly huge. Next spring I'm starting them inside a lot earlier, maybe I'll get some bigger ones.  Now...what to do with them....
More later in the week!
