Free Egyptian Onions

Free Egyptian Onions!

We're about to run out --- only orders received by August 1 will come with free onions.
Buy it in our store.

Egyptian onionsFor a limited time (until I run out), every Working Chicken Combo pack order will come with ten free Egyptian onion top bulbs.  These tiny bulbs will grow into a huge benefit to your garden.

For those of you unfamiliar with Egyptian onions, these are some of my favorite garden plants.  The onions are perennials, and while you can eat the small bulbs most people grow them for the greens --- my CSA customers unanimously told me that even people who don't like green onions like these greens. 

Egyptian Onions Egyptian onions are some of the easiest vegetables to grow.  Just throw the top bulbs into the ground now, and by winter you'll be able to start snipping greens.  We eat greens from our Egyptian onions nearly all year, stopping only in February and then again in June while they're producing their top bulbs.  After the first year the onions will produce little bulbs at the top of the plant, each of which can be planted and will turn into a new onion.  Soon you'll have starts to give away to your friends!

Egyptian onions are the base of two of our favorite recipes --- Butternut Squash and Egyptian Onion Soup and the world's best egg salad.  They're also a great addition to a winter salad --- basically, you can't go wrong with Egyptian Onions.

So put in your order now for your Working Chicken Combo pack.  I expect we'll be out of onion bulbs by the end of July, if not earlier.

Sold out!
