A crisp Saturday morning

It was one of those beautiful December mornings that you get occassionally. A bit too wet to dig, but fine for checking on the wintering garlic and onion bulbs.

That’s Sultop on the right; Solent Wight on the left.

Over at the onion bed, I’m trying out Senshyu, a yellow onion. It was one of only a handful of varieties I could find that was both suitable for autumn planting and available.

Meanwhile, the broad bean seeds are still sitting in the fridge. The onion seed experiment has yet to start. Strawberry plants need to go in the pot – thanks Ernie. I have managed to start off some more basil, but have failed sow any winter salads.

I really need to do some planning.
