Onion Harvest

I planted about 50 Italian Torpedo Onions in a small plot in our community gardens. They take about 110 days to mature, some sooner some a little more time. This is the first batch fresh out of the ground.

I use the garden hose to wash off the dirt and first layer of skin, the parchment like layer.

They are then ready for market. I actually take them to the local restaurants and do a trade. This batch went to Frasca Food and Wine where they made a succotash.
