Harvesting my onions

 Onions, which I've been looking forward to harvesting since I planted them last year, are big and ripen! The grasses falling down shows it's time to be harvested.

 Today I harvested 6 onions and brought some to my mother and my younger sister. My wife is also so happy that many onions are successful since onions are so multipurpose that they can be used for various dishes.








Growing onions are easier than other vegetables I harvested, I believe. They need less care like watering and giving fertilizers.





Those are today's harvest.

① 6 onions
② 10 spinaches
③ 8 pak chois
④ 10 komatsunas





I believe the best way to enjoy fresh onions is shown below! That is sliced bonitos with sliced onions. Say sauce with citrus juice was added as condiment. Oh,,yummy!

Your onions look great. I harvested a few things last week and I hope to be able to harvest the spinach again the end of this week.

Hi Takaeko; good to see you back in the Blog world. Hope you and your family are beginning to come to terms with your recent sad loss. Gardening can be very therapeutic - it can help to take your mind off bad things, and can remind you that life goes on...

I'm very happy that my onions are successful! I thought 100 onions were too many for me who had not grown onions before but now I wish I had planted more onions!

Yeah, I also think gardening is therapeutic. Seeing and harvesting grown vegetables can give me comfort and delight!

Great bunch of green! I need to harvest some of mine...I have let them get bigger. It is probably time to pull some up.

Now it's the time to enjoying harvesting and eating all of our vegetables in my garden! Especially, onions should be cooked and eaten as soon as they've been picked up!

Don't let them much bigger or you might let them bolt.
I also have to harvest all of my onions before they will bolt.
