Walking Onions are a fabulous perennial vegetable. They need minimal care and will produce a large amount of food in a very small space. All the parts of the plant are edible!
I use the different parts in salads, sautes, stews, soups and lacto-fermentation. I begin harvesting in early spring when the first greens come up. I continue to harvest the greens and later on harvest flower stalks, flower buds, and sometimes complete plants.
The top photo is my walking onion bed in early spring. The bottom photo is in late spring.

As I harvest I keep in mind not to use it all so there will be plenty for next year.
This season I have extra walking onion bulblets for sale!! 20 bulblets cost $21, including shipping and will plant a 4 square foot bed. Planting directions included.
