Yes, Lauren, the onions were challenging this season.  We did try our best to sort all of the onions and it was very disappointing for us as well.  We start every onion, shallot, scallion and leek in the green house as a single seeded transplant.  Thousands and thousands of plants that we seed, care for in the greenhouse, transplant and then keep weeded all season.  We think that the extreme heat for days on end caused the  problems we had with the onion crop this season.  No rain and temperatures over 90 were great for the tomatoes but the onions suffered.  It seemed like they almost cooked from the inside.  As far as what we can do next year, we just have to wait and see what the weather holds.
