Sprouted onions - flower update

The onions that sprouted in my pantry last March are tall and blooming! The flowers are pretty in a sculptural kind of way. I think it's especially fun since usually you look down at onions growing in the garden, but since these are planted chest-high, you have to look up. I think it would be really cool to plant onions like this all the way across the balcony — they'd make a kind of screen. But then they'd blow over and I wouldn't have room to grow anything useful.


  1. These are so cool. I like what you said that they make a little sculpture! It's true and I clicked the link to learn more about the planting and I thought that was really cool. Never knew you could do that!

  2. Yeah they are cool! And if it's not a hybrid you can harvest the seeds too!
