Harvesting Onions And Potatoes

One of the things I love about this time of year is that it's time to harvest so many great crops in the garden.  I always look forward to having a new supply of farm-grown onions to use in cooking and in salads.  Their flavors are so deep and appealing.  We've been trying to grow potatoes for several years with very little success, due to the hungry mole crickets that would bore holes in nearly every tuber.  This year, after moving the vegetable garden far away from the mole crickets, I am happy to report that the vines have flourished and the potato crop is impressive.
