The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Onion winners

I was thrilled by the interest in our Egyptian onion giveaway!  Zoe, Charity, Jeff, Denise, and Jeremiah --- please drop an email to and I'll put your onions in the mail to you Friday.

For everyone else who entered, I'll see how many onions are left once I box those up and will consider another giveaway.  My father has kindly offered me his top bulbs (from descendants of my onions, of course) to spread the species yet further, so we may have enough between us for another giveaway.  Stay tuned!

THANKS - so excited. This small box will go into two plots - one in Alexandria, VA and one on the Oregon Coast. Hopefully they will be the beginning of many more onions in the future. (I entered for the permaculture book giveaway a bit ago - I think this will make me happier in the long run.)

Congrats to the winners of the onion giveaway. I'm jealous. If at some time in the future you discover that you have a lot of extras, I'm sure there would be folks willing to take some off your hands wink wink nudge nudge

Charity --- So glad they've found a good home!

Fritz --- I needed that nudge. I just sent Daddy an email to see how many he has --- I've probably got two boxes left here. There will definitely be another giveaway!
