    JM mentioned growing 40 odd crops but specialising in 15 – which 15 does he specialise in?

      He means that those 15 are the ones for chefs and the ones they produce for the longest time of the year. So, things like greens, tomatoes, hakurei turnips, radish, beets, carrots, and microgreens.

      I agree and believe me, I’ve tried many times. ME has no interest in being on camera.

    nice, have you tried over wintering onions? we over winter and have a early fresh onions that move into our normal spring plantings. In with our normal spring planting we plant enough scallions to go till thanksgiving and we currently have a 400# of cured onions in storage for winter. along with garlic. But you are absolutely correct onions are daylight sensitive and being so far north east this will be a challenge. But I think over wintering onions will give you 3-4 week additional. Also we planted our onions with the paperpot this year and due to the success and time efficiency of planting them with the paperpot we could have planted an additional succession crop. My husband and I planted 10 100″ beds in 2/3 hours and we had fresh onions every week beginning in June. Its been great having Yellow, red, white and tropea onions (tropea had always the most challenging for us and I actually had some success this year) they were available every week since June. Im currently starting our seeds to over wintering bridger yellow onion and I read a recent study about onion trials… it was a link through Thriving Farmer Podcast… But we will see how they are doing this spring every winter is different. All our scallions are overwintering with zero protection so I think a lot can be done with overwintering onions all over North America. I believe fresh organic onions are on the same list as fresh lettuce, carrots and tomatoes they just taste so much better with out all the fertilizers and people really notice the difference. Im also really into green garlic but its so hard to harvest it early. I think you just need to start planting more and more often and earlier and later. You will fail but you will learn.
