onion party a success!

We had lots of folks come out last night to help us clean up & bag all the onions drying in the greenhouse... and after 2 hours we had successfully processed 1000 pounds of them! Then we enjoyed some local wine & fresh salsa. The sun set and the stars came out & we sat out by the 3-sisters garden watching the shooting stars & contemplating the milky way.
This photo shows that some of the onions are making a last attempt at life, sending up flower stalks with bright white clusters of buds. Merciless, we cut off their heads.
