we know our onions!

This is our dining room at the moment, you'll be lucky if you can sit at the table as the floor has been commandeered by our haul of red onions, shallots and garlic from the allotment. They need to stay here and dry in the sun for a while, then it will be my job to plait them together ready to hang in the shed for use over the next few months. Next up to pick are the broad beans, and we have lots of courgettes on the way. Yum!! And I couldn't resist a green home for pins, which I have just listed in my shop. I'm off to tidy my big box of felt now (trust me it really need a good tidy up!) in an attempt to keep things straight in between sewing items. Wish me luck! : )

Wow, it looks like there's a lot happening over there in your neck of the woods :) I would love to see what your felt box looked like, I have a funny feeling that it's fabulous!

Look at all that lovely bounty! I'm reminded that you guys have a passion for cooking by the scope of ingredients you've got planted in your garden.

Mmmm! How satisfying!

Oh, I got a bloom on my Asparagus peas today- this year's experimental veggie. Hopefully there will be at least a handful to harvest...

I just LOOOOOOVE onions. Quite possibly my favorite veggie. I feel you can never have too many in a dish. And shallots! Well, they're like the cherry on top! What a lovely bounty!

Very interesting to see onions this way. Ours are all imported and they never come with stalks, let alone in bunches. What a bounty :)

Hey Harriet said...

Oh such a nice bunch of yummy goodies! I bet they'll taste so good! And speaking of tasty, so is that new pincushion :)
