I planted 2 crops of onions. First crop was first week of April. 2 weeks ago most of the tops died so I dug the onions up. Nothing larger than a ping pong ball but still good for lots of things, a few onions had green tops that are very good in salads, soup, baked potatoes, and many other things.
I had another bag of 75 bulbs that got lost in the workshop and did not get planted until late May. They are doing better than the first crop but not very much better. Most onions have 9 to 10 leaves with golf ball size bulbs. I am wondering if I hill them up to hold moisture if they will do better. I tilled between the rows last night I have plenty of loose soil to hill up the onions. I have been giving them nitrogen and it has been raining almost every day. Rain stopped 3 days ago and it is 95 degrees summer is here to stay.
