Onions from waste
I read somewhere that the Carrot fly is deterred by the smell of Onions. I tried for the first time a method of growing onions . Cut the bottom off an onion leaving about the thickness of your little finger left (on the onion not your hand !) and plant it. Whoa and behold they are growing - amazing sight.
I tried the method  with the top of a Carrot and that is growing too. Feeling chuffed

Nothing great to report but these two pics show the onion bottom and the carrot top growing. Later I will give updates on the growth.

The dry spell did not help the Onions -their root system did not develop enough - maybe they need a starter in water but the carrot experiment seems fine.

When we were in Reception class in Infants school we grew carrot tops in saucers of water.
