onions from Lester in bucket

onions from Lester

Lester’s onions are legendary on the allotment.  They are enormous, sweet and don’t seem to rot as easily.  He says it’s because they’re a Japanese variety.  Lester harvested his onions on the hottest day of the year last week and filled 30 large buckets.  This morning he was rotovating the cleared ground and found a couple of dozen stray onions.  I was passing at just the right time and parted company from him with the entire bucket.  I left it in the shed to share with Pat and Robin and went off to see if I had anything to offer in return.
