Garden harvest – Onion

Like life, the onion literally has different layers –  from the outer delicate and sometimes hard to the inner most core.

Our effort to grow onions in the zone 8b this year was fruitful to say the least – the couple of rows of bulbs planted yielded well to the weather and ground conditions finally rewarding us with whats in the picture .

The vibrant purple color and the crunchy texture added to the flavor of this  under rated vegetable which adds spice and flavor to our daily meals.

Onion harvest – organic, colorful, happy, dirty.

Deep purple


 Cabbage is a leafy green or purple plant, grown as an annual vegetable crop for its dense-leaved heads.
It belongs to a broad family of common vegetables that also include brussel sprouts, cauliflower, kale and broccoli.
Him and Her allocated one square feet for purple cabbage.
Since it was a first time, it made sense not to give in to the risk factor and allocate more squares for this vegetable.
Square foot gardening technique usually works more efficiently when you grow what you know you will eat. So dedicate more to veggies that are for sure staples at the dining table.
Moreover, the seed starter process was indoors, and one sapling survived well after being transplanted in the garden plot.
Cabbage structurally consists of clusters of stiff leaves  in compact layers, allowing it to acquire round shape.
The vegetable crop  catches the eye once its out and about during the formation of the layers.
Successful in the harvest of the purple cabbage, it was treated as a star in the kitchen.
Have to admit, the crunchiness was amazing.
