“Funyuns”

I never liked the artificial ones, but the ones in my garden always make me smile. These Egyptian Walking Onions are fascinating, and pretty wacky. Mother Nature never ceases to amaze. They grow a crop of new onion bulblets in their flowers.

They keep it up until the stem collapses under the weight, planting the series of bulblets, which is why they are called “walking”.

On the verge of collapse.

We aren’t the most disciplined of gardeners, and the onions are almost everywhere. Fortunately they are pretty tasty.
