Week 31: Onions & Garlic for Winter 2014…

Along with the colder wetter weather, I am continuing with my preparations for Winter planting. More Onions were transferred from their initial trays (now with leaves) onto the plot:

so growing on my plot I have:

  • Electric Red Onions
  • Snowball White Onions
  • Solent Wight Garlic
  • Provence Wight Garlic

And still to come are:

  • Jenor Shallots
  • Radar Onions
  • More Electric Red Onions
  • More Snowball White Onions
  • Lautrec Garlic
  • Early Purple Wight Garlic
  • And Elephant Garlic.

The raised bed, next to the Pumpkins, with Solent Wight Garlic and Electric Red Onions.

Planting Snowball White Onions for the Winter.

The new Onion & Garlic Raised Beds against the plan!

After the Onions have been planted, Buzz Off tape has been strewn across the beds to put off the Pigeons, Parakeets and birds.
