Google to the Rescue

We went for a quick trip to Oliver last week.  It's been a couple of months since we've been there.  Not that we hadn't planned on going sooner, but my trip to Ontario changed things up, and then I was trying to catch up around here (impossible), and for one reason or another we just couldn't seem to make the time.  The first thing I did was check the little vegetable garden.  Amazingly it was still surviving.  There had only been 1.17 inches of rain in May and June.  A family member had been there on the July 1st long weekend and done some watering.  These things, whatever they are, were the most impressive.    There had been a clump of them already in the garden when we took possession last Fall.  


At the same time I was planting some garlic, I took a quite a few of these bulblets off and planted them also, and now I have more of the same thing.


And some of the tops go a little crazy and do this


The bottoms of them look like this


So I wanted to know what they were actually called.  After not making any headway, I finally googled something like 'singled hollow stemmed onion with bulblets on the top'.  And I got this

Mystery solved!

  1. Huh, figured it was in the onion family but never heard of them either. Let us know what you do with them and how they taste :)


I love to get comments, so don't be shy!
