Onion sets

I’ve had a lovely evening in the garden planting onion sets in modules and planting cabbage and lettuce plants straight into the soil.

I had sown onion seeds earlier this year but unfortunately the germination rate was very poor so I decided to plant sets in the hope of getting a good crop of onions. They’ll probably be a month later maturing but it doesn’t matter.

Gardening is full of successes as well as failures; this is one example of when we have to adapt and be flexible in the garden in order to have the best possible crop.
