This year we have increased the amount of onions we are growing by 50% due to demand from members. Back by popular demand are shalotts. There are two varieties ambition and the banana shalott called zebrune. Onions are not an easy crop to grow organically as they need fertility and good weed control. We have wonderful fertile soil thanks to the cover crops, sheep and chickens. Our German made finger Weeder keeps the weeds at bay magnificently. These will be harvested in August.
