Meanwhile, the onions

There is not much going on on the balcony these days as the past few weeks have been rather cold and rainy. Since we had at least no frost, I could leave all the plants outside, where they will hopefully benefit from a streak of sunnier days forecast to come.

The only species that really underwent a development recently was the onion: The seeds I had put in the soil in late August have sprouted and one onion that had given up growth (and dried out) during the summer has started a comeback. I would have never thought that growing onions on a balcony could be so rewarding. And so easy at the same time. If everything works out like it did this year, I should be able to harvest the onions from these sprouts in early summer next year.
