yes, fleece goes back as soon as harvested, they were fine till august, so can only assume havesting onions, let the fly in, they are perfextly edible, just have to cut affected parts out, which is time consuming, but got 50 lbs from 2 packets seeds so ca'nt complain

 I grow fly resistant varieties on allotment, so do crop rotation to try and prevent bugs. They had got onions next to them until they were ready to harvest in September so perhaps companion planting does work.
