The onions, second season

by balconydresser


Last year, I wrote rather extensively about how the onions proceeded from flower to seeds, how I harvested the seeds and sowed them again. The sprouts, which had grown from the seeds, remained outside during the winter, partly covered with fir green (you can still spot some needles on the photo). When spring came, they started growing again and during the last couple of days they almost doubled in size. They already make good scallions now, but I am really curious to see whether I will end up with actual onions eventually. By the way, the bunch of smaller leaves on the right are from onion seeds I sowed around the end of February this year.
