Five Months of Onions

We used up the last of the onions from our garden in a pot of soup this weekend.
The last of the onions pureed up with winter squash and carrots into a African style peanut soup.
We harvested the onions in late August.  That means five full months of homegrown onion goodness.  It also means we still need to grow even more this year--twice as much, in theory.  Still, considering we cook with them daily--sometimes a couple of times per day--we're pleased with our ever-increasing progress towards self-reliance.  Matt will be starting the first way of onion seeds this week.  Round and round we go.
Onion seedlings from April 2015.
