There's always onions in the garden

Dear Family & Friends

I'm not going to ran out of onion ever again. Nor would have the need to buy onion bulb to plant in for many years to come. When I planted my first 10 teeny weeny walking onion bulbs five years ago, I was so tense and anxious to be successful with it. Little did I know that it is the most easiest bulb plant to grow. It produces the spring onion greens and tiny onion bulbs too:) The onion bulbs grows only to a marble size, but you can turn it into pickled whole onions:)

The bulb onions are also used to produce more plants. In my garden, there's spring onion popping up everywhere as I have the habit of a squirrel who hides all those little onions into any vacant soil that I can push and bury it in.

In our kitchen, we use a lot of chopped up spring onion - both the green leaves and the stem: for stew cooking, mix for egg omelet, or fresh mix with salads! Everyday, I go about pulling at least two onion plants to bring to our kitchen. We eat onion daily!

Another plus with this plant is that comes winter, when there's so limited veggies growing, onions can stand bravely despite the cold season - making it an all year food for us:)

We're now enjoying cooler weather - a perfect autumn season, full of sunshine yet not hot:) I hope you are having the same enjoyable and blessed week ahead too!
