Our First Harvest - Onions

I've always wanted to have a farm. I think most kids like the idea of farming. As you can see, my girl is basking in our first harvest of onions. At first I wasn't sure if I was doing it right, but I kept an eye on them and we watered pretty regular and here we are. It sure feels fantastic knowing that I can grow some edibles.

One of these had a flower growing from the end. Toot put the flower in a vase with water and it's on our dining room table now. Fresh smell of onion while we have our breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That's right, the flower smells like onion. You can kind of get see the flower on the first picture. It's bent forward and touching the ground, white flowers.
They need to air dry for a couple of days. I'll also be cutting off the stems and roots in a few days and letting them dry some more.
The Gorilla was even impressed with our gardening. He said, "You ARE a hippie!".
