Autumn or japanese onions – first pulling

Tempting to leave these autumn onions to fully mature, but it makes more sense to start pulling and using them now, as I’ve been having to buy cooking onions for the last few weeks since my stored maincrop onions ran out in April. Probably the best use of autumn or japanese onions is to cover this gap, as they are prone to bolting and don’t store so well. I’m usually a bit late planting them, must try to get them in in late August or September this year so that they might be ready to start eating in May. Really I should never need to buy cooking onions, not even for a few weeks a year!
