Ours all had to come out last week, had either whit rot or black mould (according to the site old girl who knows what she is doing) lots are soft and squishy, the red barons seem ok but the whites going to check tomorrow and see what has been saved - and apparently can't grow onions in the same spot for 7 years now :(

One of one of my three varieties has started to turn yellow. We've had nothing but drought here, although I've watered them once or twice a week.

How come you lot have harvested all yours already? I'm getting worried ...

Just taken the first flower head off one ... not bad me thinks :) All grown from seed.

mine were red barons and some were good and some were not. i noticed the ones that tend to grow big have a thin stem and only about 30cm long but the ones that grow small small tend to grow very long and thick stems. Next year i will try white onions but just push the root part in and not all the way in and cover it with net to keep those pesky birds away  >:(
