default it just me?

Post by Adrian on 28th April 2010, 4:37 pm

Or is anyone else thinking about yields and wondering if 400 onions will be enough this year, or should I throw in another 2-300 just to be sure..?

The chance to think in those numbers would be good. However I suspect you can never have too many onions. Did you know they were worth a small fortune during WW2?

I suspect the answer is like the freezer answer, you can always use more.

lol!

I grew shallots for the first time last year, but found them a bit maddening to peel, especially when doing a 'slam it in the pot as quickly as possible because I've spent the afternoon in the garden' recipe.

Been seriously looking at goats today thanks to the rain - still not sure I have enough onions though, think I will double up on what I have, just to be sure, its not like we ever have enough onions in our house..

You can never have too many onions - every year I say I am going to make onion marmalade and I never have enough. Heads off to garden to plant another row ...........
