Knowing when and how to harvest and dry your homegrown onions is important to ensure they store well and last through the winter months with no rot.

Harvesting onions are easy but you should not just pull them from the soil, rather you should use a fork and pry them gently lifting the onion. All care should be taken to avoid straining the neck of the onion, if this is stretched too much it will cause damage to the bulb and it will rot during storing.

Learning how to harvest onions ensures you can store them. Lay them on the ground for a couple of hours to allow them to dry off.
