Can anyone advise me on the best way to dry onions prior to storing please? I have always laid them out on a rack in the greenhouse or friend's conservatory but this takes up lots of space (I have alot of onions!). Monty mentioned a few weeks ago on GW that shallots and onions can be laid outside on racks to dry, regardless of the weather. I don't want to question my hero but surely the rain will stop them from drying out and may even rot them? Has anyone tried this?
