Since I started cultivating the onion seedlings instead of viewing them as weeds, my attitude changed towards their care. I had been cutting off the onion flowers as soon as I see them forming so that the energy could be directed to forming the onion bulb. It is satisfying to see the swollen bulbs all in a row.
I decided that today is the day I would harvest those Walla Walla onions. It was satisfying pulling out those beautiful golden globes from the planters. There were a greater number of onions than I had anticipated! This still left some immature onions in the planters.
