Great Expectations!!

20130906-222819.jpg20130906-222754.jpgThis onion needs no introduction and can clearly speak for itself! The last circumference measurement of this particular onion was a staggering 19″!

Once upon a time this was just a tiny black seed, sown in moist compost on Boxing day 2012, kept warm, then transplanted into its’ final growing position at the allotment when big enough to stand on its’ own.

I am astounded at how big it has grown! I plan on pulling it at the end of the month, as long as the weather still looks favourable – or before the thieves and vandals get their hands on it.

Happy diggin’
