My Boy and His Onion

my boy and his onion My kiddos have been really enjoying watching the progress of our veggies.  This is my boy and he is very proud of his onion. We’ve watered and watched until we could stand it no longer.  He was very excited when I told him he could finally pull his onion out of the ground.  It may not be huge, but it’s his and it made the most delicious spaghetti sauce.  It is so true that if the kids have a hand in growing the food, they are more likely to enjoy eating it. You can be assured that we will be planting more onions next year.

    Trinity Mommy, thanks for visiting. I just jumped into gardening with both feet as I do not have green fingers. Lots of trial and error. Unfortunately we’ve lost a couple of plants, but most seem to be doing well. Go for it, if I can do it, anybody can.

  4. Hiya,

    the best wonderful onion ever! and all because you nurtured it until it was harvested, the best kind of food in the world!
    Glad you liked the laces!

    Love Sarah x
