Friday 19th April 2013 – So many Beetroot and a few Spring onions.

Had a lovely morning on my plot. I managed to dig over a bit more of the bed where the onions are going in and planted another 48,(which was all I had with me). I then sowed the rest of the “Lilia” Spring onions, and 3 packet of Beetroot. To be honest I’m not that keen on it, but Mark loves. If you do eat too much it makes your wee pink. I sowed “Chioggia”, “Burpee’s Golden” and “Boltardy”. It’s all starting to take shape now, I’m one happy bunny. But still lots more to do.

    are you forecast the frost this weekend claire ? we are, and i’ve been out in the pouring rain here earlier covering up my beds with sheeting, hopefully that shall keep the frost off. so plants should be fine, me, i am freezing cold and wet now !!!

    • We may get frost saturday night/sunday morning, but I’ll watch the weather on saturday to check for sure. Make yourself a hot drink, and watch a bit of TV. That’ll make you feel better.

    Hi Claire, just one question concerning onions: i sowed onions ‘the Kelsea’ in february ( never did that before) and they look very well by now. At which size should i plant them out? They are about 3 inches now, i don’t know if that’s big enough.
    (By the way, i am sort of exotic in my allotment, because i planted broad beans. It is not very well-known in south-germany, but i really love them.)
    Thanks a lot!

    • Wait until the onions are about 6 inches tall before you plant them out. If they’re too small they won’t survive. And place them 4 inches apart. Broad beans are great. I love them. I hope they do well, and other plot holders where you live decide to try them.
