2013 Egyptian onion giveaway

Egyptian onion setsIt's that time again --- the season to send out more Egyptian onion propagules into the world!  Those of you who have read The Weekend Homesteader know that this perennial green onion is easy to grow and to cook with.  (You can read more about it here.)  To sweeten the pot, Egyptian onions produce top bulbs copiously at this time of year, which is an incentive to share with friends.

This year's Egyptian onion giveaway is an everyone-wins affair.  Just share your favorite Walden Effect post on the social media platform of your choice (facebook, google plus, twitter, pinterest, your blog, etc.), email with your mailing address, and I'll mail a box of about 100 onion top bulbs to your doorstep to fill your garden (and neighborhood) with green-onion goodness.  I'll keep mailing out top bulbs until we run out (at which point I'll make a note on this post), but I expect we'll have enough for at least the first twenty folks.  Enjoy!

Edited to add: All of the onions have been homed.  Thanks to everyone who entered!

I was a lucky recipient of some in... 2010? 2009? Somewhere back there. And they're still going strong. This year we wised up and pulled a bunch at once, sliced them up, and stuck them in the dehydrator. We kept trying to keep up with them straight out of the ground and missed tons of them - or ended up with far too many re-seeding. They're great fun to show off, especially when they're starting to tip over. Thanks again!
