A Bruised Knee, Wet Days And Time To Plant The Japanese Onion Sets.

It's not been the best of weeks weather-wise here in not very sunny West Cork.

Storm Lorenzo could hit Ireland and Blighty in the next few days.  Gale season seems to be happening more frequent than the usual November to March.

I prepared the ground a couple of weeks ago when it was dryer.  Every week we have been asking our local farm cooperative hardware store if the sets had arrived.  This week they finally did arrive.

So this morning I cleared the newly appeared weeds, picked a few stones and planted the Japs.  I hurt my knee last week.  A wheelbarrow decided to stop suddenly when I  was pushing it.  I think it was the pruned branches in the wheelbarrow that wouldn't fit through the gate.

Any way or road.  I forced myself to pike and rake and get the old knee joint working.  I was like the tin man in the Wizard of Oz.  That's a parody on self determination and agnosticism you know?

Here's the Japs:

If you have never grown them before I thoroughly recommend you get some.  Its wonderful to see the green stalks poking through the snow and ice.  They're tough old beggars those Japanese onions!


  1. Shortly I need to tend to my pots of flowers. Drat. Hope your knee recovers quickly. Take it easy now.

  2. I think I am accident prone Joanne. I am always hurting my self when I am gardening. Thanks for commenting.

  3. Hope your knee mends itself quickly. A great storm and a poorly knee don't go together so well. Yes, we await the storm and from what the weather men say I await it with trepidation.

  4. Thanks Valerie. The storms are arriving a lot earlier this year. Just hope we still have electricity. We rely on it for the well and to work the pump on the range and power everything else. Thanks for commenting.
