Congrats! My onions are taking forever to bulb up. It's perfect to just let them push up and sit 1/2 way in, 1/2 way out of the Mel's Mix.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

somewhere i have a link showing how i grow onions--i let them pop up as much as they want then as they fill out i uncover them all the way to the roots. this allows them to cure on their own when the time is right. i'll try to find that link when i get back on my home computer.

I agree. I check them when I'm watering and run a finger around the bulb to push more soil away. I never did that before and had small onions. Now mine are getting reasonably large.
