I am not sure if this should really just be relief. The onions have been growing at a snail’s pace this year after a decent start when they were treated with care and tenderness. But after weeks of growing painfully slowly the past few weeks have seen some growth and now the bulbs have started to swell. The onions from sets have been the poor performers so far and these from seed are the best of the bunch. They hold some promise and I am happy.
