Tiz the time of year when I go shopping for my onion sets. So we went in Woodies in Tralee and I purchased two packets of 'Electric' red onions and 'Shenshyu' onion sets.
The wife went off down an aisle looking for Henry vacuum cleaner bags. Unfortunately I am sad to say she found some. What's wrong with a house brush and dust pan or even a Ewbank? They don't use electricity and they don't make a noise!
I've been growing my 'Japs' for donkeys years. You plant them now in the vegetables garden and they will be ready to harvest next June before the maincrop summer onions are ready.
Japanese onions are so resilient to the gales and snow and rain and they really are tough beggars. They also have a good taste. I might plant some in fish boxes in 'Portugal' my polytunnel like I did last year? To be honest they don't mind being planted outside.
Anyone else grow Winter onions?
