Onion Harvest!

2011onionday2I vaguely remember talk of a European Butter Mountain when I was a kid. Well, we’ve produced an onion mountain here at Merrybower 😀

All four of us braved the gorgeous sunshine to pull a few hundred onions up, and even more shallots – possibly around 1,500 in total. Smiler bagsied the job of watering the trees (well – he was bagsied). Of course, the gorgeous sunshine is as reliable as a pair of paper pants, so we took refuge under the picnic blanket, eventually making a break for it all huddled in a tonne bag. Yes, the rain was *that* bad! What fun 😀
