Extending the perennial veggie season with nodding onion

Fresh 100% course barley/rye/oat sourdough bread with olive paste and nodding onion

Allium cernuum (Nodding onion / Prærieløk) is one of the few plants that can be harvested in winter if one can find then under the snow! An important food plant for both Native Americans and “colonists”. I planted up a bucket full of these onions in the autumn leaving it outside and brought into the living room frozen solid about 10 days ago. The plants have now started to grow and I had some for lunch :)P1510930
