It was a busy year! I thought it was about time I let you all know how the season turned out.
Not a single bolter of any of my alliums growing from seed! The Ailsa Craigs did have some pungency and were not super mild, I believe this is typical for Northeast soils. It depends on the sulfur content of the soil.
I still have some Cabernet onions in storage. Contrary to other reports, the Ailsa Craigs lasted 4 months for me before they were gone, without spoilage. We were eating them on Thanksgiving!
Thanks for reading and I hope you had a great 2016 season! It is almost time to start it all over again, I will be doing the onions and leeks in a couple weeks.
For 2017, I think I will chronicle my solanaceous seed starting. See you in a couple months!
