Sjoerd, I tried last year to post pictures and was unable to do so. Maybe I will give it another try this year. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again! New Grow, maybe you can carmelize onions and both you and your wife will like them, aye? I find that hanging the onions in an area where fresh air can be all around them until the stems dry and turn brown works for me. Then I cut the stems off to about 2 inches above the onion top. I place them either in a mesh bag - one that oranges or grapefruit comes in - or in a cardboard box, cut down so its about 2 to 3 inches high on the sides. If I use a mesh bag, I hang the bag on a curtain rod or any place where the air flows around. If I use a box, I turn the onions ever so often, like maybe every two weeks or so. Some will eventually sprout, but very few decay or rot. The sprouting ones we chop and freeze or use right away. Soon, maybe early March, I will plant some lettuce, peas, spinach, broccoli and more onions in little pots and await the opening of the Spring season. Sjeord, what is Lathyrus? Flowers? Food?
