Hi Rick,

 

Congrats on the huge score at the fair ;)

 

I know one type of Onion I planted is a Walla Walla, and the other is a Yellow, unknown at the moment because it pouring again. I would have to go out and look. Glad they're under the porch roof. 18+ inches since Labor day, and now probably close to 19"s.

 

The fans gave me a chuckle, mainly because I've been there with a "pepper kitchen".


It's all about the pods....

Cheers Scott. Sounds like you're getting the rain we had at the end of August. My onion skins were so wet for so long before I harvested, that they had rotted where they came in contact with the soil. Now I know that I shouldn't leave them out so long when the tops die in those kind of conditions...

The sauce came out well, it was mostly my TS Yellow varieties and Douglahs with a few PDN x Bondas to make it an even 3 pounds of pods. The sauce is so thick I put it in wide-mouthed bottled to make it easier to spoon it out. It has a nice clean pepper flavor and a truly wicked creeping burn.

Next up is making up a triple batch of Jerk Rub tomorrow and packing it into 8 oz freezer containers to put away for the winter.

Cheers all!41c1f4982106f16f672e3439146fca1d.jpg

Oh yeah, way to much rain this September. I'm afraid it has hampered any chances of a fall crop, 21.5"s so far since the 3rd..

 

Watch out for mold setting in on the Onions during a wet harvest time. We've had that the last 2 seasons. They pull up so much water, and a month later the mold starts growing.

 

The last 2 years we've been running them through a food processor and freezing them, just so they don't go bad.

+1 Shane!

Hope you had a great season, Rick.
Didnt get to check in much this year,
but will do better next season.

Maybe next year will be a little drier 😎
