You guys do a great job and IYou guys do a great job and I love your site, but I have to reply to the onion stomping comments. I've been successfully grown large sweet onions for over 40 years and have yet to stomp my first onion! Onions are easily brusied and they usually rot when that happens. After the bulbs form and the tops of a few begin to fall over, I carefully fold or bend the rest of the tops over. After about a week I harvest and dry them in my garden shed. This year I raised over 150 lbs of 'Candy' and 'Superstar' in my Zone 5 garden at 37.35 degrees latitude. Some were over 3 lbs.! 25454259
