Now don’t think badly of me because I had to buy some onions.

Well the time has now come. It was inevitable really, and I couldn’t put it off for any longer. I’ve officially run out of my own onions, except for a few very small ones that I roast whole with the chicken. Yet again I didn’t sow enough last year. I think they’ve lasted me longer than they usually do, so that’s a good thing. The ones in the shop aren’t as nice as mine. Please don’t think of me as a traitor to the gardening profession.

    I don’t think I have planted enough! How many do you usually plant ?

  4. I don’t think anyone can grow enough onions on an allotment if you grow a good variety of other crops as well. I always run out in the spring – no shame!

    LOL I’m onto my last onions also so will be doing the same buying shop ones,will have to sow more this year to last even longer. I think I planted around 300 onions last year,I did lose a few to mould and rot but still had a good harvest.

    You made it to the end of Jan before running out, tho – respect! I have really enjoyed your youtube videos, they have been a huge help as I started veg growing. I’ve just found your blog, I’m sure there will be lots for me to learn here too. Thank you! Lucy

    I have been following your blog for quite a while, but never had the time to say anything. I working in the culinary field of farm to table farming and had a garden myself. I understand the best is when you grow them yourself, but from time to time as long as you buy local, there is a problem getting from your neighbors garden, if you catch my drift!!
