And 200 Pounds of Onions
Tristan found 200 lbs. of onions in a dumpster. Apparently there were more, but this was all he could fit in the car. We're not sure what, if anything, is wrong with them. I checked the food recalls; nothing. They are New Mexico grown, too! We'll have to see if we can find a way to store them safely through the summer. Onions like to be stored at 35-40 degrees, and we don't have a refrigerated space that can handle these puppies. In the winter, an improvised root cellar would probably work just fine, but they may sprout before temperatures drop into that range.
