Garden latter April update #gardening

We’ve had a couple of warm days and things are starting to grow.

Here’s the outside onions that had outgrown the egg boxes – which was a bad idea by the way, not enough room for the roots!

Though no birds have had a go at them, so the fact that they have sprouted in the egg boxes was good, maybe bigger containers next time. The wire is keeping the cat off them for the moment too.
And some greenhouse onions:

With some in containers that were destined for outside, but I ran out of space, so they’ll probably end up being eaten in a salad instead.
The sprouting garlic I planted is growing well:

And the red onion that sprouted is a double sprouter, no ideas what to do with it, I’m going to leave it and see what happens!

The spinach is growing well:

The leeks before:

And after transplanting out:

Though they are tricky to spot.
And the lettuce before:

And after container upgrade:

The reason for the containers is that I still haven’t mapped out where I’m going to plant them yet!
After the transplanting I sowed a few more spinach and a few more lettuce. The plant is to keep reminders in my phone so that I don’t forget like last year.
The early potatoes are breaking the surface, not worth a photo yet. Though most of my patch is potatoes this year, so there will be better photos later I’m sure.
It’s interesting looking at the photos again… So many weeds and stones that I didn’t see before.
