A good week in the life of Hopesay Glebe Farm, The harvest of onions completed in double quick time, all now in the poly tunnel drying off. Looks like we a reasonable crop of about a tonne, will last on our markets till about April.
We always grow our onions from seed and hand plant through a biodegradable mulch. This gives us improved storage over onion sets and reduces the risk of introducing white rot to our cropping area. We do see a handful of onion plants with rot but with rotation of the crops have managed so far to keep it to a minimum.
