onions, onions, onions oh my!

I’d like to tell you a story about a beginner gardener.  Last year, an anonymous gardener *me*  planted 150 onion plants and to her embarrassment, 3 survived the weeds and the drought… 3 .. .out of 150 😦    mega frown face…

I really wanted 150 onions, better yet would be 200! So this year I planted 770 something.  Guess how many onions you get when you plant 770 something and want 200 🙂   Apparently ~ 770 something.

  1. wow, lots of onions… Can them, braid them, dry them, put them in canned soup stock, salsa, spaghetti sauce… I’m sure there’s tons of stuff you can use them in!

  2. yes, don’t think it will be a problem to use them all, but it’s sort of funny anyway!
