Actually, they’re not extra. There are just a lot of them. You are looking at part of the Veggies For All 2011 onion harvest. Just like the rest of our crops, they are headed to folks in our community through the Volunteer Regional Food Pantry.
But before we send these onions out into the world, they need to dry thoroughly so they can be safely stored into the colder months. About half of our harvest is dried, but still needs to be trimmed, boxed, and delivered to the VRFP. Hey, that sounds like a service-doin’-work-party to me. If you’re interested in helping out Thursday 9/1 at 5:00 PM-ish give me a shout: firstname.lastname@example.org.
