layers of the bulb are dry and papery. For details on curing and storage, see

The real-life backyard Schmoo is the duck. We are long-time fans of the duck. We
keep three or four of them as companions and helpers in our yard. Over the years
we have raised several breeds: Australian Spotted Bantams, Welsh Harlequins,
and Indian Runners. Each breed has its virtues and it is difficult to recommend
one over the other. Ducks are the perfect backyard livestock because they are so
well behaved. Ducks need water only for drinking, not swimming, although they
