5.6.13 Asparagus, Spring Onions and Chard

Enough of the asparagus has finally made it’s way up to warrant harvesting. Along the way, we picked some of the over-wintered Fordhook chard, a handful of spring onions ( chives, walking onion, and garlic chives), and a couple of leaves of garden sorrel — dinner in the making.

    Beautiful. I can just imagine the earthy smell of those early gleanings from the garden. Nothing better.

    I must looking walking onion, read about it in other blogs but have no idea how it walks.

      It’s also called top-set onion, and reproduces by bulbils that form on top; the stalks fall over and replant themselves. I’d be happy to send you some when the bulbils return later in the season!
