A couple of days ago I planted the onion sets at the prescribed spacing. I know Gary likes to increase the spacing which makes for bigger onions but I like smaller onions as they are more useful to me. I was just about to go when the rain started, so when it had stopped and the ground had dried a bit I pushed the sets into the freshly dug ground with the very top of their little bulbs just showing. I didn't cover them. That evening, and since, there has been spells of rain, sometimes heavy. That should hopefully kick them off into growing. A warmer, drier spell is forecast later this week which should help the onions and help me do some more tidying and digging.
