Shallots arrive


Friday was sunshine and showers, with the showers a little too frequent to make any use of the sunshine in between them. Temperatures were around expected with a high of 6.5°C. After a dry 2011, January has got 2012 off to wet start and we've had around a third more rainfall this month than we might expect. 

It’s the time of year when onions and shallots start arriving from the suppliers. Marshalls have sent our shallots which arrived today.
Last year we started our shallots in pots in the greenhouse and it worked well. There is no way that ground on the plot will be in a fit state for planting. I’ll have to do a bit of tidying up in the greenhouse first though.
