The onions have sprouted (or onioned!?!).  There are definitely green shoots coming up in the onion patch (some of them are weeds, but some of them are onions – hurrah!).  Given I’ve seen no signs of anything happening in the potato patch, I am relieved that something is actually growing!

Plus, in an unrelated but also excellent bit of environmental progress, the council has been persuaded to put us in a shower.  Fab – soon we will be able to cut our water consumption as we move from baths to showers and embrace 20th century technology!!
