    Default Drying Onions

    We have lifted our winter onions and they are drying on the outdoor table we have. But how do others dry their onions?

    I use the "innards" of an old plastic blowaway greenhouse. The frame and shelves are used as greenhouse staging in the early part of the year, stand for hardening off plants around now, and as a drying rack for onions (among other things). As a greenhouse it was rubbish, had more use out of it since I gave up using it when the cover ripped for the third time.

    I put the chicken wire that my early peas grow up over an old 2 seat garden bench then lay them on top for air circulation

    I am drying mine on top of the mesh on my chicken run, gives the chooks some shade, the mesh allows air flow and it is in the sun. I bring them in if there is a chance of rain (ha ha)
