Photographer's Note

A strange subject for a picture? I found this sight quite pleasing. August, and the onions had been harvested, and now left to 'cure' before being stored.
Once again, a picture from the kitchen garden at Knighshayes.

"Plant onions as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring, usually late March, early April.
Select a location with full sun.
The soil needs to be well drained, loose and rich in nitrogen.
When tops are brown, pull the onions.
Be sure to harvest in late summer, before cool weather.
Clip the roots and cut the tops back to an 1 inch.
Let the onions cure on dry ground. Always handle carefully.
Allow onions to dry for several weeks before storing."

These are the typical 'Spanish' onions or white onions.
In the w/s some red onions, and also a shot of melons growing against a wall.

Thanks for looking.
