You are supposed to leave each set poking through the surface but I find the birds tend to pull them out thinking they are something to eat so I ridge the soil an inch or so to cover them. The soil is light enough to allow the onion to swell as the set grows. Once the roots have gone down there is no problem.
I also had a change of heart over the horse litter I had collected and put in the bottom of a compost bin. I moved it onto a path where it will hopefully smother or burn away the weeds. I shall scrape any litter I spread last autumn and now need to remove and put that at the bottom of the bin to soak up any 'juices' that soa down from above. When mixed with the rest of the bin contents when I transfer it to the next bin it will be much more use.
Now I need to get my greenhouse set up where the old shed used to be!
I harvested some Russian Kale sprouts which were very tender and tasty. I've had very few leaves as they were mainly old and tough but now the plants are sending out flower sprouts that we enjoyed. Perhaps I should have given them some fertiliser to keep them growing.
Anyone got any suggestions?
