These onions totally disappeared over summer, due to the heat and dryness. With the first few rains, they popped up again. They are looking very healthy.When you have a closer look around the bunching onions, you can see the seeds of the lamb's lettuce (corn salad, mache) that have popped up again. I always let a heap of them go to seed at the beginning of summer to ensure a good supply of corn salad for autumn/winter. The seeds scatter, are dormant over summer, and germinate with the first rains in autumn. That's my kind of gardening!
