Will share for Egyptian onions

Egyptian onionsWant to win a box of Egyptian onion bottom bulbs? Every year or so we give away a starter set of these dependable perennials to a U.S. reader who wants to expand their garden patch. This year, I'm hoping our readers will give us a moment of their time in exchange for the offer.

How can you enter the giveaway? Just share the facebook post below, and in a week I'll choose one random winner to enjoy a small flat-rate box of Egyptian onion bulbs. These bottom bulbs aren't usually sold online and they give you a year's head start over the top bulbs that are more frequently available. So hopefully they're worth spreading the word about our farm.


Thanks so much in advance! Mark and I appreciate your support as we move toward our new adventure.

I just found out you are in the process of getting ready to start a new adventure! I was amazed and excited, because this seemed so out of the blue. Your place will be a treasure for someone! The facebook page though, seems to be down or unavailable, or at least the privacy settings make it not available on your blog.

Leigh --- It is definitely an abrupt right turn, but hopefully it will be the right decision once all the dust settles!

I seem to have the Walden Effect facebook page set public...but social media is mostly a mystery to me. :-) Here's the direct link in case anyone wants to share and can't do so using the embedded image in the post: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1494846017260829&id=110763222335789

Thank you all for your help!

I won some walking onions from you a handful of years ago. While I've had them in my garden every year since, this is the first year we've gotten bulbs big enough to really bother with eating. I love that they're on the smaller side sometimes - it's nicer to use a whole small onion for a single dish than to figure out what to do with that leftover half onion sometimes!

I have a great onion shaped plastic device that will hold your half spent onion for several days in the refrig. It's shaped like a larger purple onion and unscrew to put your half onion leftover and then reseal it. Very handy. It will actually hold a complete large onion too if need be. Fits nicely in Frig

Who was this year's lucky recipient? Do you think offering the giveaway worked as well as you'd hoped to spread the news of the availability of your property? Do y'all plan to continue giveaways at the new homestead?

Rae --- Ryan was our lucky winner! The giveaway definitely spread the word and helped us land a few nibbles (although nothing solid yet.) I'd do it again and will definitely be giving away more onions...in a couple of years once our transplants have time to spread. :-)
