Second Year Onion Update
I'm giggling as I type this... I can't help but think that all of you who read my blog must be sitting there thinking, "I can't wait until this girl goes back to working 70 hours a week so she doesn't have so much time to post!" *grin*
This is a short one, I promise. Remember those leftover onions I found in the garden in April? Well, amidst the sturdy, strappy leaves of both are appearing tiny flower buds! Cool.
I'm going to have to keep an eye on these guys--some in the allium family have gorgeous blooms but others... eh, not so much. Time will tell (soon) how plain old red onions fare in the aesthetically pleasing department!
(Yes, I know... my hands look atrocious. I was so intent on pulling up the garlic mustard on the side of the garage that I forgot to put on my gardening gloves before it was too late. Ah, who am I kidding? I hate gardening gloves so I probably would have gone without anyway.)
