Sweet, short, ABUNDANT Thanksgiving! A Horn-of-Plenty, a Cornucopia!

New this week: ‘Franz’ or Ciboule Onions. 2 farm children picked out allium (onion) seeds from seed catalogues, planted them, weeded them, mulched them, watered them, harvested them. They had one 18 x 4 ft bed for their alliums. After harvesting our family’s yearly onion need they still had one row left in the bed of a new, experimental heirloom, perennial allium. These can be replanted if you want your own perennial (year-round) crop! They over-winter and start multiplying in early Spring. The young greens can be harvested from April to May for an early veggie/herb. They resemble leeks and scallions, the whole stem is edible. We bought them from Heritage Harvest Seeds. Ciboule onions are prized in France and Asia!
