A prominent Vidalia onion farmer says he's packing and shipping onions Wednesday, regardless of what Georgia's agriculture commissioner may say. Delbert Bland is battling Ag Commissioner Gary Black in Fulton County court over whether the state has the authority to tell growers when to pack onions. Speaking by phone to GPB Wednesday, Bland says he believes a court victory in March gives him the go-ahead to ship onions. "We're shipping onions today, and we're shipping onions because they're mature and ready to ship," said Bland.
