Growing onions is so simple. I kind of cheat by buying packages of 'seed' onions. These are tiny little onions you can just stick in the ground and they simply grow into bigger onions. Really super simple! I ended up with quite a few nice yellow onions this year despite the heat so I am quite happy, especially because last years crop completely died.
Anyway, the onions were recently ready so I went out and carefully removed them so the greens remained in-tact. Now they are ready for braiding! I look forward to eating them all winter long!
NOTE: we also harvested all our shallots and braided them for the winter too! I just love all the fresh onions, shallots and garlic! Check out the garlic post here!
If you have never tried growing your own onions, or shallots definitely give them a try in the spring next year!
For garlic it's actually time to plant them right now!

In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
