Egyptian Onion Giveaway2

Egyptian Onion bulbIt's time for a long overdue giveaway!  Our Egyptian Onions have produced top bulbs, far more than we can use ourselves and give away to our friends.  So we've decided to give away twenty top bulbs to one lucky reader.

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.

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on any post by June 30.  I'll throw your name in the hat (multiple times if you make multiple posts) then will contact the winner through the blog in July.  (Be sure to check back on July 1 to see if you won!)  That way you have an incentive to leave us lots of comments.  I look forward to hearing from you!

I love to read your blog and I take a peek to see what's going on pretty much daily. I've seen those onions before, I was just never sure what they were. They look fantastic! Thanks for all the wonderful postings, tips, and pics. I think that where you are is a week or two ahead of us on what's happenin' outside, so I always see what you have to say and then get excited for the next thing to happen in our garden! Thanks again!

Thanks so much to everybody for your comments! I'm glad to hear that Egyptian Onions continue to be popular. I can't figure out why so few people have them when I consider them the miracle plant!

Husband doesn't like onions, but I like them enough for both of us. Pop me in the hat, please!

He may just learn to love them --- I used to hate green onions until I tasted these!

I've got extra onions if somebody needs them.

One of these days I'm going to have to hook people up with some kind of permaculture plant/seed swap....
