It’s amazing to see how some plants will go to any lengths to reproduce. My walking onions are huge this year. Now they’re finally reaching out to make new green onions.
Don’t let this deceive you. The bulb, caught in the chicken wire as it is, will not give up and quit. If the bulb doesn’t land on ground, it sends out a shoot with a new bulb. If that bulb doesn’t reach the promised land, it’ll send out another extension. These bulbs were made for walking, alright.
This one, for example, will only need one shoot to get to the fertile soil that awaits. Yeah, yeah, I know the prose goes overboard a little. A lot. Never mind.
Give it a few weeks. We’ll have green onions galore. Onion soup, anyone?
We’ll plan to be there for onion harvest.
