Pears, Peaches and Onions, oh my!

Hooray! Those onions are gorgeous! Are you going to keep them in a root cellar or freeze some? I'm curious. :)

And congrats on your peaches and pears, too. I spied some baby peaches on our tree and I can't wait.

No great storage options in this Texas heat and humidity. Once they're dry, we'll pull off leaves and roots and leave quite a few out just for daily cooking over the next few weeks. The rest will probably get dehydrated (OUTSIDE, not inside ;-)). When I dehydrate things, I double bag them and throw them in the freezer and they seem to last at least a year. A lot of these will go in spaghetti sauce and salsa after the tomatoes are ready to harvest.

Your onions look great! Have you ever thought of dehydrating some of the onion tops? I'm debating cutting some of my tops to dehydrate while I'm waiting for my bulbs to form. I've never tried it, but it seems like they'd be great in omelets and soups.
