On a recent trip to my father’s allotment, I came across these kings of the vegetable patch.
I could not get over how beautiful these onions were. They stood tall and proud.
Here are some drying in the sun.
This spectacular display attracted much attention from other allotment goers!
Seemingly not satisfied enough with the huge amount of white onions, my father had also sown red onions, which he harvested when I was there.
Once my father picked the red onions, he set about putting them into storage, in his purpose-built shed. The smell coming out of the shed was overwhelming!
There were enough onions to feed an army! I am expecting a lot of French onion soup to be served up to us on our upcoming visits in the autumn!
