Attack of the giant onions

Looks like I may have added a little too much nitrogen (alfalfa pellets) to my garden this year since they all are getting huge above ground but not much below ground. Currently they measure around 3 and a half feet and here in the Pacific Northwest summer doesn’t even start until July 5th. I am sure the extra sporatic weather we have been having the past month doesn’t help much either.

    Same thing happened with some of mine only they didn’t receive any extra nitrogen. I think the drought caused them to bolt (these weren’t watered, and the others that were are just fin)

    If what’s below ground grows as readily as what’s above, you should have a bumper crop!

    gintoino,We did have a mini drought around here was watering quite frequently but guess maybe not enough, my spinach also bolted.nancy, I can only hope so guess it has plenty of opportunity for photosynthesis
