Borage and Onion

Our onion and borage have decided it was time to start growing again. The onion we left in there from fall so it could finish getting bigger and the borage was self seeded and much bigger than last season's crop. It will make a nice addition to this weeks salads.
Of course the bed they are growing in is our least rich one. It's mostly sandy soil which means good drainage and not a lot of anything else. It's getting more organic material only as it has grass or weeds we pull die on top and decay into the soil but no fertilizer or compost has been added in quite some time. And then it been buried several inches down.
