Hi all,<br><br>
I planted a ton of onions this summer and a few tops started to turn brown and fall over so I went out to pick some. When I got out there I realized that some of my onions were getting soft so I picked ALL my onions. I braided them and left them to dry out but most of them are not just drying out perfectly and beautifully....most of them are getting soft and rotten. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Why is this? I pictured myself having braided onions hanging in my basement, cooking with my homegrown beauties into the winter.....what did I do wrong??? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I don't know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
My onions didn't rot, but the biggest ones were only the size of a lime. Not a big lime either. I was looking forward to homegrown huge Walla Walla Sweets, but when the tops got brown and fell over they were just dinky. I'm still using them anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
