So, our garden has grown and grown! We are quite proud of this lovely little area of our backyard. The girls have taken great pride in watering and caring for their plants. It has been a fun learning experience. This weekend, we did a little research on our onions and decided they were ready for picking, so we took the plunge and decided to pull one from the ground. Here's how it went.....
Where's the onion?
Nothin, nada, zilch.
So, yeah, not too good. We all walked back inside the house very bewildered by the experience. Basically, Ella pulled out the top and there was no onion attached to the bottom. We dug around and nothin. We pulled out another to make sure the first wasn't a dud and that one was the same! They were yellow onion bulbs that we planted, but they just look like chives. We are still confused. Any vegetable gardening experts out there that know what happened? Did we try to harvest the onions too early? Are these actually green onions(chives)?Did an animal come and eat them? What did we do wrong?! We need answers!!! So, other than the onions, the rest of the garden is flourishing. Here are other pictures of our growing veggies and herbs. . .

The tomatoes are getting there!

So, all in all, the garden is growing. But those onions are using trickery. And we don't like it at all.
