If you love to cook you know that nothing beats the flavor of fresh onions for your salads, dips, or soup. Wouldn’t it be nice if you can just pluck them straight from your garden without even walking outside?

But why bother growing onions when they’re available all year round from the supermarket? For one thing, store-bought produce is hardly fresh. In most cases, there’s no way of knowing where they came from or how long they have been stored. You also have the comfort of knowing your product is free of herbicides and pesticides. Another benefit is that there’s no waste because you only cut as much as you need and the final benefit is that you get to save money as you don’t have to buy them.
