Why you should only buy onions half as often

20130705-120203.jpg

Here my friends is a bundle of three onions I found in the ground by my Hibiscus. A few weeks ago I cut an onion top off of a store bought onion. As my friend says, “it was growing hair” in the form of long green leaves. I chopped the hair off and half buried it in the ground then forgot about it. Today I noticed the hair was half brown and leaning over which I’ve heard is a sign that it’s ready. I gently pulled and lifted out if the ground effortlessly as it seemed to slide out. I now have three small onions that were birthed from a large onion.

I like to get the most out of my produce!

Grow on,
Marissa
