    I’ve never tried it. But it works to keep them from squishing each other, and to keep them dry. If one starts getting soft or rotten, it’s separated from the others.

    Does this work with more perishable onions like Vidalia, Texas Sweet, or other seasonal sweet onions?

    September 1 to February 1 and I ran out of onions before they started to sprout or go bad. Okay, maybe 4 of the entire bunch went bad. My friend said that if she has onions that start to turn, she cuts them up and freezes them. That gives you another month or two.

    I’m considering trying to grow onions this year. How long did your harvested onions last when stored this way?

    Brilliant idea for small crops of onions. I think it has been around for a while, but your explanation and pic is great. Thanks

  7. I saw in one of the restaurant here in our local area that they used onions as a decoration. They used onions to form various shapes and design. It was so good to look at.

    This is a fantastic idea. I did this with my onions and they are so neat and easy to store. I expect to spread this idea to others. Thanks!

  10. This is a hilarious photo. With a wife and 10 daughters, 5 still at home, I don’t think I could grow enough onions to fill all the nylons.

    Now I have an excuse to build that next raised bed, more onions!

    That is awesome! I don’t have a cool dark basement to store them in so I’m going to dehydrate them next week.
