Three blog posts in one day? What can I say? I couldn't wait for the biggest onions to dry, so I cut off the tops of the eight largest and weighed them to see if I could beat last year's 1 pound-4 ounce biggie. And the winner is......2012, with a 1 pound-7.7 ounce Walla Walla Sweet onion, 3.7 ounces heavier!

Mr. Granny holds the 2012 23.7 ounce onion (bottom)
PS: The 8 onions, with tops removed, weighed a total of 10.4 pounds.
