Onion sets

Had the ground prepared so early this morning I planted onion sets -stugon ? The supervisor recommended plenty of our own compost. 3 rows 25 cm apart and then 10 cm between each set. I was a bit generous with the spacing but I really want to have a nice crop. I even used a school ruler for accuracy (a bit OCD ?)
It hasn't been sieved so it was funny picking out the monkey nut shells from last year. the circle of life and all that....

  1. Well, don't talk to me about onions. These little guys have made no effort. Maybe they were too close to the surface. I gave them some extra soil to see if they would put on a spurt. They have had plent of rain in the last few weeks so that should help.
