Blooming Onions

Those onions I wrote about in my last blog.Well. They've gone to seed. This means they have produced flower heads early on in the season whiich is not supposed to happen. From my reading on the internet this occurs when the conditions aren't quite right with the little darlings. My brother in law, who has successfully grown onions before has had the same problem, which indicates that it's not my soil conditions that are a problem but something more widespread. I have been left thinking that maybe this exceptionally wet weather has not been conducive to happy onions.
