Egyptian Onion Giveaway, Part 3

Egyptian onion top bulbsOur Egyptian onions made a lot more top bulbs this summer than I'd expected.  I've given them to every family member who will take them, shipped them out with our automatic chicken waterers, and mailed some to my loyal readers.  But we still have a few hundred top bulbs left, and I'd like them to go in the ground soon.

So it's time for Egyptian onion giveaway number 3!  This time, I'm going to mail out a lot of bulbs --- maybe a hundred or more, depending on what's left in the box.  To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on any post by August 3.  I'll throw your name in the hat (multiple times if you make multiple comments) then will contact the winner through the blog.  (Be sure to check back on August 4 to see if you won!)  That way you have an incentive to leave us lots of comments.  I look forward to hearing from you!

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.  Read more about our Egyptian Onions (and how you can get some free by ordering 3 Avian Aqua Misers) here.

Hello! I'm Allie in Memphis. I've been following your blog since I'm interested in homesteading. And since you're giving away onions, I figured it was enough incentive to post a comment! I love your blog and I've shared it with several friends. I've learned a lot of stuff that the bigger sites just don't think to mention. Keep it up!

Thank you for doing yet another giveaway! I've been intrigued by Egyptian onions for a while, so I know that no matter what, I'm going to have to grow some of these next season... so that I can try them for myself! grin

I've always been interested in Egyptian onions, and I would love a chance to win some for free! I found your post through my google email! Your website looks great. Is your dog a Chesapeake?

elcome to the site, everyone who's new, and thanks for posting, everyone who isn't new. :-)

Genevieve --- I'm impressed by your dog know-how! Lucy is indeed a Chesapeake Bay retriever. She's a truly wonderful dog, and that's saying a lot coming from a cat person. :-)

I love weird new plants. Pick me! Pick me! And even if you don't, I'm really enjoying your website. I live in the city but like to pretend I'm homesteading with the chickens and the big garden full of more veggies than I can possibly consume.
