|Last year's red onions|
Monday, March 25, 2013
Last year I grew red onions from seed. Although I did get a few that developed to an eatable size, they were all pretty small. I'm not sure whether the rubbish weather was to blame or whether it was because I grew them from seed. Anyway, this year I thought I'd have a change. Before Christmas I put in Senshyu Yellow Onions and today I've put in some shallots. My fingers were frozen in the few minutes I was outside, so I've covered them up with fleece (will keep the birds off too!). The onions are beginning to show some green shoots already, so I won't bother covering them. Only time will tell...
