Spring equinox

Potted on the Red Kamen onions. I wouldn't have normally because they still have (had!) plenty of growing room in their cells, but the pesky sparrows, which I was so pleased to see after a few years of them being missing, have been digging all around the onions, so the onions now have very little soil around their stems.  They have been excavating in the carrot planter too,  so I have put a piece of chicken wire over the top.
No rainfall, (been no rain for a while, couple of weeks I think) min temp 7C, max 12C.
I have constructed a crude cold frame at the allotment so I can take the onions and the sweet peas down to the plot to harden off.
Spring equinox, the clocks go forward tomorrow.
