Thinning Onions

I planted a couple of rows of onions rather late this year, but it seems like they wanted to grow anyway. In fact so well that they needed to be thinned many weeks ago. I’ve been busy indoors lately since our second daughter was born 6 weeks ago and our first daughter aged 1 ½ years doesn’t really know how to appreciate vegetable gardening 😉 I finally managed to find time to thin the onions. Looking at the small scrap onions I realised that they looked exactly like the onion sets you buy in the stores:

Fortunately I had some free space in my bed where the red beets used to be, so in with the small onions:

Hopefully they’ll survive the transplating and give us twice as many onions as planned.
