The three fruit bushes I planted yesterday are looking great and I gave they a feed to boost them up a bit. It is amazing how a little plant food helps the plants as they immediately perk up. Next I planted some young bean plants around the canes, filling up the gaps. I tried to grow quite a few from seed in pots but I was a little disappointed when just a few of them germinated.
My friend David on the plot next to me arrived to plant some Asparagus plants that he has grown from seed, I am very impressed with how many had germinated and he gave me some spare plants. I gleaned a couple of good tips from David about growing Onions.
(1) It is best to cut the seed pods off the Onions that have bolted early to slow the growth down.
(2) When you store Onions it is best to turn them upside down to prevent neck-rot.
I spent an hour weeding between the beds and then went off home.
