I'm going to tie the long bamboo poles together so they are about 2" apart. I want to be able to have the leafy parts go down through the bamboo and hang. And I want the bulbs on top to dry. I think I can fit a lot in that way. I'm hoping. I have a lot of onions in there.
I only had one blooming Copra onion this year. All the rest were good which is much better than in previous years. Unlike my zucchini I think they did better under their row cover then out in the open. The netting row cover though is very light and lets rain, sun, and wind through quite well. I can't use it for a zucchini though as it would just tear the cover apart. So next year I'll do it again. I do need a taller row cover though. The tops really had to bend over to fit.
