August Gardening Tip—from GARDENING IN IOWA AND SURROUNDING AREAS
When harvesting onions for storage, let the tops hang below the bulbs on the edge of a table. When the onions have dried, trim them to within one and a half inches of the bulb. Twist the stub very tightly. This helps the onions keep better.
