My Spring Onions are almost ready to start pulling. They’ve done very well this year. Last year I had germination issues but this year has been completely different.
Spring Onions are a great crop for a small garden because they don’t need thinning and so you can get lot and lots of plants from a very small area of soil. My crop is in an area about 50cm by 20cm and there are plenty of onions there to pull one or two every day during the next few months.
I didn’t sow them successionally, just all at once back in Spring. And because as I harvest them the ones left in the ground will have more room, so the thinner ones will get bigger as I need them. It’s as if they were made for small gardens!
