The Walla Walla onions have given us no trouble whatsoever. They’ve done exactly what they’re supposed to every step of the way, required almost no attention, and attracted no pests. All thirty-two of them have survived. I call that a great success story.

Now the tops are dying down and we are beginning to harvest the bulbs as we need them. We’ve pulled three so far, taking the biggest ones first in the hope that the smaller ones will notice the extra space and grow a little bigger before fall.
