The Onions That Walked All Over

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.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave

Oh, what a tangled web we weave

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.

 

All aboard!

All aboard!

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.

Score!

Score!

Give it a few weeks. We’ll have green onions galore. Onion soup, anyone?
