After what seems like weeks of wind and cold and rain, it only takes a couple of sunny days and suddenly it looks as though we might get some produce this year.
|These are tree onions, or Egyptian walking onions, which is a much more exotic name by far.|
These edible bulblets are produced at the top of the stems.
|Walla Walla sweet onions, grown from seed, beginning to swell at last.|
|These Quattro Stagione lettuces have been looking like limp flattened seedlings, but are now finally beginning to heart up.|
|Little Gems are also putting on new growth fast.|
|Last week they were immature white buds; this week, we have raspberries!|
|Hosts of strawberries hang down over the side of the raised bed.|
|Purple-podded mange tout peas need another couple of weeks before they're ready to eat, I think.|
