beetroot and turnip
That patch of dark soil in the next garlic bed is where I planted some Red Baron onion sets ages ago in 21st February. I had a rootle around and found most of them, and several looked the same as when I put them in the ground, some more had a few roots and 2 or 3 had some roots and top growing. I probably haven't done them any favours by digging them up, but it gave me an idea of how far on they are. So I will give the other bed, planted at the same time, a bit longer. Maybe because it has been so dry, they just haven't got going. I puddled them in with some soil improver and some Grow Organic to help them on.
