Many many months ago I planted out tiny, tiny onion seedlings.  They lay flat on the soil for almost a week before they finally took hold and raised their heads to the sky. 

Four months later they are almost ready to harvest.  The skins are becoming brown and dry, along with the green strappy leaves.   Have you ever eaten a freshly picked onion?  No?  Oh what a treat you are missing!  They are sweet, juicy and nothing like the nasty old ones you find at the local grocers.  These are best eaten raw of softy fried in a dollop of fresh butter. 

Now you’d best be planning on including a few in your next plantings come Feburary


One thought on “Onions

  1. I have onions for the first time this year, it’s so exciting. Haven’t tasted them yet but I’m looking forward to it.
