Planting notes 16th April

It's seed sowing time again!

I'm planting a double row of "Touchon" carrot and "Paris silverskin" onions, with the carrots underneath and the onions on top. I've done this successfully before in pots, and in the raised beds at home. Let's hope it works as well at the allotment.
I should be able to use the onions young as spring onions, or leave in the ground longer and use a salad onion.
Next up, the remainder of a packet of "French Breakfast" radish from last year, and turnip "snowball", a white variety which can be eaten raw in salads.
Then, a single row of perpetual spinach, again left over from last year. We'll see how they do. Finally, a single row of "Long White Icicle" radish. These should allegedly be ready to eat within 25 days of planting.
Job done! I feel just like Monty Don.
