Plant or this to 3 inches apart once they are 1/8 inch thick. Pull for green onions and spring onions as necessary. When to Harvest: Tops will fall as bulbs ripen. When 60% - 70% of the tops are down you can begin harvest. ( Even for those that were planted at the same time but have not fallen ) Once you've pulled up you need to let them cure. To cure your onions: Let them sit in the rows, pulled out of the ground, for a hot day or two (don't start pulling them out in the rain, okay?) After a day or two the onions should feel dry and the tops should have browned, if not give them another day (you can move them to another well-ventilated area.) Store without washing to keep them longer. Wash before using.
