Onion Time

Well to be honest almost anytime of the year is onion time but now is the normal time of the year when thoughts should start to turn towards the onion.  Don’t start to turn your nose up at the thought of any hassle connected to growing something you can, very easily, buy in the shops.  There is such a huge range of onions available from the small and very tasty spring onions through to big round ones, long ones, thin ones, fat ones, onions with red skin, white skin, golden skin, red flesh, white flesh, onions with a strong flavour, mild flavour, sweet flavour and the list goes on.
