Onions On The Windowsill
You may have noticed the onions drying on the windowsill in my Unplugged post. I love the way the sunlight and shadows look in the morning. It’s a beautiful still life image. I find art in many places. Who would have thought a bowl filled with onions would be so pretty.
Our garden only has a few onions left in the ground. Next year we plant to plant more of them, they were used and shared quickly. Many are drying in the garden bench outside.I love being able to see their progress through the screened doors.
Can you see the onions in there? I’ll open the door for a better look.
Onions have a way of telling you when they are ready to be pulled. They tip over and the green tops flop onto the soil. It’s really quite incredible when you think about it. The onions let you know when they are ready to be picked! This one is almost ready.
We still have plenty of green onions left in the garden. You can see some of them in the background. I use them a lot for cooking and they are great in salads too. Several of our grandchildren are fond of green onions, hard to believe kids like onions, giggle I use green onions instead of chives in recipes too.
When they are almost ready for eating they end up in a bowl on the windowsill where the skins soon dry and peel away. A reminder of the many layers inside. For those who may wonder if our home smells like onions, I am happy to share that it doesn’t. There really is very little smell at all until you cut them.
