GROW: The Book
re "Onyums" ? - did you mean to type Onions ?
I grow onions most years. Some people in my area say they are hard to grow but I put them in raised beds and I think they loose raised bed mix in there helps them out. I also like the multiplying onions that just keep going and going.
@rainbow No, I meant "onions, yum...!!!"
@silvertipgrizz I usually grow onions from seed. I prefer the red or purple onions over the yellow or white. I think they have more flavor and also offer other nutrients too. Eat from the rainbow.
Ditto. I actually started carmalizing them with sweet taters in a sauce pan on the stove. I add them last and let them sweat. That's all it takes to take the HEAT out of them and makes the sweet taters even better. Of course I only put a very small amount of oil, and lots of butter and slow cook.
This year I will try to grow 3 kinds of red onions and I am hopeful and anxious as I really do love red onions, and of course the valdalia too.
I used to have Walking Onions. They are a perennial crop that we found easy to raise. Unfortunately I did not take starts when we moved so I am now looking for a good source. Last year we did raise some red onions that were small but tasty.
My ex husband used to complain that I used too much onion when I cooked.
I love them! Like @Obiora E , I like the red ones best. I've always thought that I generally stay pretty healthy because I eat a lot of them.
i usually grow my own onions now i really like the white variety cooked the red raw, and just found way to make onion cough syrup onions covered with honey. i strained the onions out of the honey and put them in a separate jar now i have onion candy!
@VickiP Look what I found for you:
@silvertipgrizz Thanks! I had forgotten about this one, last time I was there they were not shipping. Their prices are pretty good too.
@VickiP I'm going to get the 'flat rate' box of smaller clumped ones for 7 ish and flat rate of 6 ish.
Note on their front page they have a pix of a flower for you to guess and if correct you win some free walkers!

@Mary Linda Bittle That ex of yours didn't have good sense in multiple areas, did he?
I like planting green onions, red and yellow ones. I love adding the green parts into soups and raw consumption too. When I was little, I’d reach over the fence in my mom’s garden reaching only the greens, thus I love them. Yet since getting older, I can eat onions no later than 2:00pm, and cooked ones are better for digestion.
@Mary Linda Bittle Yes that makes sense! Onions are a good source of Vitamin C and have other nutrients in them too.
