Will my onions grow any more?
« on: November 08, 2012, 14:02 »
I am gradually pulling up my seed-sown onions, sown in January, in size order, but the remaining ones now are little more than fat spring onions.  Do they have any growth left in them or is this as big as they are going to get?
No matter how many plants I have in my garden, I can always find room for one more.

At this time of year, that's it I think!  But would be good for pickling! :)

I agree with grannie. If left for next year they'll most likely go to seed.

GYO - cut them up and freeze them raw - they freeze well for stews and soups..
