Monday afternoon finished up mild and sunny with the temperature managing to just make it to 20°C - a rarity this June.
On the plot the overgrown bed of last year’s over wintering cabbages and weeds has been cleared and is now ready for digging over. The ground was on the wet side so I’m leaving it a couple of days to let it dry out a little.
Our winter onions planted on the 4th October last year have survived winter and are now large enough to use. These onions don’t store well and usually keep us supplied in onions for the next three months when the onion sets planted in Spring will be ready to lift and store over winter.
Another couple of harvesting first’s for the year were a few radishes “Sparkler 3” sown 26th May and a few alpine strawberries.
