New Onions From Old, December 27, 2013

Every Friday is Sky Watch Friday, but it is only on the fourth Friday of each month
that gardeners around the world post their photos for Salad Days at Veg Plotting.

Sky Watch Friday
Sunset, Fulton, Mississippi, USA, Monday, December 23, 2013
We had 2 inches of rain last week-end, but sunny skies returned on Monday.

December 2013 Salad Day
Sprouted and beginning to rot
What do you do when you find the onions in your kitchen are sprouting and beginning to rot?
Don't throw them out!

Trim off the rotting part
Trim the onions, being careful to leave the green tops and the root intact.

Planted in the garden
Plant them in your garden.
I like to use these large tubs for gardening in cold weather.
They are easy to cover to protect plants from frost.

Harvest
In a couple of months, new onions from old!
Note: I do not have any salad ingredients growing now. These photos are from earlier in the year.

Have a wonderful week-end!

  2. I'd love to eat a little more salad but when there's only two people with small appetites it is hard to buy the small quantities required.

  5. Hi Lea, that is a beautiful sunset! I guess I should watch my own sky here in Southern California a little more often... I had no idea that you can grow onions like that. Thanks for sharing! Wishing you a Happy New Year!
