Onion Harvest

Yesterday I pulled two rows of onions and one bunch of garlic. The day was mild, not even 90 degrees, with low humidity. I piled the harvest in two wheelbarrows and moved into the shade to process them. I brushed off the dirt and trimmed the roots. Then I began stringing the onions on large loops of twine. The garlic is braided and trussed with twine. Each bunch has a loop at the top for hanging. They are hung out to dry, as they say, in the studio.
