Accidental onion

Here's a Vidalia onion that grew in my compost bin!  I did absolutely nothing to help it grow.  

I just threw an onion core in there months ago and it just laid out there in the ice and the rain and the snow and the wind and the hail and still, it grew. Now there's a plant with three (now) two little onions!

I have plans for this little onion. He's going in a roast with potatoes. Yum!!


  1. Ginger,

    We enjoyed your blog post about our onions! If only the farmers could grow them that simply.

    Sweet regards,

    W. Brannen, Executive Director
    Vidalia Onion Committee

  2. That's neat to get a Executive director feedback.
