I just harvested a vast amount of onions from my garden. Can you tell me the best way to store them? Thank you -- Marilyn


Congrats on a great harvest. Onions should be stored in a warm, dry, shaded location for 2-4 weeks, until the tops and necks are completely dry. Then they should be stored in a cool, dry location. Here is the link to the KSU bulletin on Onions from which I took the above information. Carole - Johnson County Extension Master Gardener
