Sometimes we can take it for granted when a plant decided to grow for no other reason than because it was designed to. We tend to call them weeds, after our kids I think.
These little guys grow all over our yard and although we mow them down quite a lot they are edible and can replace onion in any dish that requires either green or white onions that are chopped.
They are a bit stronger than normal onions and you can therefore use a little less than normal onions. They have really good flavor though. I tried one on a dare.
This pile was left at our house by a friend so I figured it was a good time to take a pic and give myself a note when they would be available. Happens every year.
