Overwintering onions

We now have overwintering onions for sale in the Trading Hut. We have two varieties on offer, the popular yellow Japanese Senshyu, and also Red Winter, which as the name suggests is a red onion for autumn sowing.

The onions will be sold in 250g bags with each bag priced at £1.00. The prices do fluctuate year to year depending on how much we pay the wholesaler, but as ever we aim to offer an excellent deal compared to standard retailers. In October we will take delivery of garlic bulbs for sowing this autumn/winter – we’ll keep you posted when these are available. We’ll also have onion and shallot sets for spring sowing available early next year.

The Trading Hut will next be open on Sunday August 25th at 2.00pm, to coincide with the working party being held that afternoon.

Working party Sunday August 28th

I hope everyone has been enjoying the recent spell of warm weather – the fruit and veg certainly seem to be benefiting from some much-needed sun.

This is a reminder that there is a working party this Sunday, August 28th, where we will be working on clearing overgrown parts of the site. Start time is 2.00pm outside the Trading Hut, and we should be finished by 4.00pm. As usual, refreshments will be provided for workers. Please come prepared with stout gloves, and secateurs/shears/strimmers if you have them.
