Onions are up

The greenhouse is about 1/3 full of onions and leeks. They have just started to emerge. The larger one here is about 1/8 inch high.

 

This is a composite of 9 shots, at different focus points. Photoshop tries to pick the in-focus areas from the various shots and combine them. The depth of field is very small in each shot, so both shoots are not focused in any shot, in fact only parts of the larger shoot is in focus in any given shot. It's not perfect, as you can see on the left onion shoot. Some of the out-of-focus shots manage to blur the top of the shoot where the onion is doubled over.
