Some BIG Onions

I decided it might be a good idea to get my onions pulled and ready for storage. Especially since it was going to turn cold today. I thought we planted a lot of onions last year, but we almost ran out and didn't have any for storage. So we planted two rows this year. Boy did we ever get a lot of onions! And they are big ones too. The great big ones you can see in the pictures are Walla Walla's and they are about the size of small plates. I don't think I have ever grown onions that big. It is fun to plant the garden and then see and enjoy the fruits of our labors.

Another successful harvest was our spaghetti squash. I got three plants from the nursery and from them got about 40 squash! That's quite a bit for only 3 plants that I almost killed.

P.S. Sorry for the sideways picture. I still am not technologically smart enough to figure out how to fix that. I thought I did and this is what I got. You can still get the idea of how many onions we have.
