Hope of things to come
The onion trials are up...the clear winner so far is the small onion bulbs, they are going ahead much faster than the seeds on the left of the picture. Of course it will all depend on what we harvest in August. Maybe it simply means that the onion seeds need to be planted earlier. In between is a row of carrots as companion planting means the pests of one should be put off by the smell of the other.The plum tree' tsarina' shows itself heavy with fruit. Thanks to the rain recently they have swollen to a reasonable size. Looks like a plum year again.
