The spring onion we planted back in April is ready to be harvested. I can’t help but wait until the bulbs are a decent size as it is so much more rewarding pulling them up. We planted them about 4cm apart, and thinned any that were struggling to grow. They would have been planted back in March, but those of you that know us, know we didn’t move in to sunny Francis Street ’til April.
The best bit is that we can keep sowing up until August, as the warmer the weather gets the quicker they will grow. The later sowings, we may have to cover when the frost hits, but any spare space that is produced from harvested carrots can be filled with spring onion….soon the big bulb onions will be ready!
