Tucked up in bed & Browned off

All my onions are now safely tucked away in one of our spare bedrooms and beginning the ripening process having been stripped back to their first unbroken skin and washed in tepid water with a small amount of washing up liquid in it. I have 23 large ones and 20 vento and some garlic now it is just a case of waiting till my first show in 3 weeks time they should be a nice color by then. There are quite a few which are similar in shape and size so i may have a set of 5 for Harrogate.I have still got the 2 larger ones to harvest in the other tunnel but as they are still growing away so there is no rush,given that harrogate is still 7 weeks away.

  4. Following on from Dan's comment, it looks a bit like a trophy room to me.

  6. Paul...you should make yourself a pair of undercrackers out of that material. That way when you shit yourself when you see my veg at Harrogate it won't show up!

    Richard....it's a big too big for a trophy room....about 30 cubic metres too big!
