Potting on

Only another week left before I start work again after the Christmas break, as I will be away in Edinburgh for the week so I spent yesterday potting on the Onions and Leeks. The Large Onions are really motoring and are now in 5" square pots



 half of the Quality Onions are in 4" pots and the others from the second sowing which are slightly behind them are in 3.5" pots.The Leeks are now collared with pipe insulation and are also in 4" square pots
The germination of the Vento has been a bit erratic with less than half coming through I sowed another 30 last week just in case as I need around 30 plants to choose from.
I am now looking to start positioning the barrels in the tunnel ready for the long Carrots and Parsnips

  2. Sorry Richard but you must admit they are doing well it is a shame you do not live nearer as I am only going to grow half of them due to space and needing it for Leeks and quality Onions. The rest will be up for grabs If you think mine are good look at these

  8. Its wonderful Blog.With LED grow light , there is basically no heat produced, you do not need an elaborate exhaust system to remove heat (just for plant odor removal if you so choose), no ballasts are required, and the LEDs will last 7-10 years with no bulb replacement.
