This morning I was walking with a friend and along the way we saw what they thought to be asparagus growing along the trail (wild asparagus?). This began a conversation about how things grow and do you know what I am utterly confused by? Onions! Well, onions and garlic.
I understand that you can take a bulb of garlic or an onion, put it in the ground and have it grow into more garlic or another onion. Wait! See, this is what confuses me…you put that in the ground and it sprouts something green that flowers, but if you dig it up, you find…the onion or bulb of garlic that YOU put in the ground. The green stuff that grew isn’t MORE onions or more garlic. So what exactly is it that we’re looking for? Because I’m pretty sure what you find is your same OLD onion or bulb of garlic with a pretty flower at the top.
Ok talented gardeners…explain!
