How to Plait onions for storing

 

 

 

First tie a length of twine about 1 metre long into a loop and hang it somewhere strong enough to take the weight of at least 10lbs of onions. John put a strong nail in the doorway of the shed for me.

In a figure of 8, loop a large onion on the bottom.

Continue to add more onions in this way until you have a good string. Trim excess.

Only store onions that have thin necks. Check them regularly for any showing signs of rotting.


FLOWER SHOW - AUGUST.

These are just a few of the many superb entries.
