Vegetable Patch

 Despite the drought the 'veg patch' is becoming productive. The work of the volunteers has paid off so that what little water there is goes to the vegetables and not to the weeds.
 The paths have still to be finished with a top dressing of gravel so the vegetable garden is not open for the public to walk around just yet although it can be viewed through the door in the wall.
Onions and shallots are soaking up the unusual amounts of sunshine. As a variety of onion shallots taste somewhat like a common onion, but have a sweeter, milder, and yet richer and more complex flavor. Shallots tend to be more expensive than onions. They can be stored for at least 6 months.
