I know I blogged about these last year, but they're just so cool I had to take pics again this year & post them. These are my walking onions, AKA perpetual onions, because they grow little bulbs out of the top (eventually, after they quit sending more green tops out) and plant more onions all around.
I didn't harvest many last year because I wanted to give them a couple years to get established and plant lots of other onions. I think I can harvest a lot this year, since I took some of the bulbs and got a second onion patch established.
I say I garden because I like to eat and because it saves money, but really, sometimes I think it's for the sheer joy of planting something and watching it grow. Kind of like having kids, except plants can't talk back or roll their eyes at you. Plus, you don't have to worry about sending them to college!
