This started out as a gift from my better half. We have a huge garden with a magnificent total of two (2) spring onions! :)
It went from the picture above to:
…in just 25 days. It grows about 1/2 an inch a day!
One day, we decided to harvest and eat it. I’ve nurtured it with tender loving care, watering and letting it have some sun for quite a while and it seems that the spring onions have peaked due to the depth of and amount of soil.
Thus, I just fried two sunny side up eggs and threw in the chopped up spring onions.
I didn’t put any salt or pepper and it tasted great!
I’m sure part of it is due to the fact that we grew it ourselves.
Try it out yourself! Having a small garden we can harvest and eat is fun (and healthy) since you have full control and spring onions are perfect since it’s something that grows extremly fast and you can use it in a variety of dishes.
I have seen monsters at the wet market (we managed to get to half the length of commercial spring onions) and a particularly long and huge one during dinner over the weekend.
It gave me a minor case of pen…I mean, *spring onion* envy.
