After the success of the Winter onions last year (Radar), I bought some more.
I planted 60 to fill one of my beds, and still have over 100. Not sure if this is a good thing… They were a success, but they stay in the bed until midsummer or later so I can’t really use the bed for much else (note to self: how about transplanting seedlings that have been sown in rootrainers?).
Even if I do grow a squillion onions this year, I’ll be able to use them. I’ve blanched and frozen onions befire — which turned out OK — and I can always learn how to dry them. Also I may be able to use them as informal currency.
