Thaks for your reply BB.
I've had some good crops of onions in the past but there are times when you need someone to say 'you're flogging a dead horse' so I'll throw in the towel and start pulling them this weekend. Leeks can go in and I've sown some winter veg which can take their place.
It's no huge loss and I like strong onions, the one's which make your eye's water whether in a salad, buttie or cooked dish.
I've mooli growing in a raised bed close to the onions and they're beginning to bolt but the roots have bulked out to the size of carrots and ready for picking.
