onions not storing well

A lot of my onions are going mouldy around the tops, particularly the Bedfordshire Champion which grew so well. It is quite disappointing.

I have heard that insufficient drying before storage can cause this, so I wonder if in future It would be better to store them in the attic, where it is a lot drier, rather than in the garage, where it is colder and probably damper.

To try and save as much as I can I have sliced and dehydrated all the good bits of the mouldy ones

 And I will be moving the remainder up to the attic.

I picked some of the biggest apples and I will freeze some and dry some and put some in the loft. (I just hope we don't get anybody coming to sleep over anytime soon)
