Keeping Qualities

Not much to say about the weather as the dull, mild spell continued.

Our Peasgood Nonsuch apples stored in the garage fridge are still in good condition. We can’t be absolutely certain about the variety but with such a wonderful sounding name, and  it’s a variety we planted at one time, we’ll stick with it.
It’s a bonus crop as these apples are from a cordon tree growing behind our greenhouse which was cut down long ago and sort of regrew behind our backs and now produces a delicious crop of cooking apples which store very well.

Our onions are a different story. It wasn't that easy to get our crop dried off last autumn and that problem is now being high-lighted amongst our onions in store.
I don’t think this one will make the pot as it’s only any good for the compost heap unlike the apples which might just find their way into a crumble.
