And this year we have a few Varieties

Shallots:
Yellow moon
Griselle

Garlic:
Early purple wight
Purple wight
Solent wight
Sultop
Valyo

Onions:

All of the garlic has been planted yesterday. Checking my notes, that is a year to the exact day that I planted it last year. One batch of yellow moon and griselle have also been planted. There is still quite a few left to plant.all being well, this will be done in the next week or so.

Solent wight was planted in raised beds. This year, carrying out a bit of an experiment.

The garlic has even sank through cardboard on project othello. Hoping that this will stop the rain eating it all. In addition the cardboard will reduce the weeds that might crop up.
