2013 Updates

By their very nature, diary based blogs such as this become repetitive after a couple of years and it's increasingly difficult to find something new to add. However, after a 2 year break and a bit more time on my hands, Vegpatchblog is re-born. I hope you enjoy my often frivolous ramblings.

If you really need more information on a post or topic, please feel free to message me and I'll do my best to respond within 24 hours.

Cold, windy and sleet!

Bloody weather!  Enough said!

Given the set up I have, the onions I'm growing in root trainers are coming on fine as can be seen in the photo above.  Varieties are Kelsae, a Kelsae-type strain from a local grower and Mammoth Red.

Last week it dawned on me that I had forgotten to order any red onion seed this year, other than the Mammoth Red.  My local rip off garden centre didn't have any seed so, as I've never grown red onions from sets, I thought I'd give them a try and bought a small bag of Red Baron.  I've now got 45 planted in 15 cell modules in the greenhouse.

Other than sowing a small tray of both red and white Cipollini onions, that was it for today.  Hopefully, I'll have a bit more to report later in the week..........weather permitting!

  1. This is such a great idea. I would never have thought of starting them off in cells!
