Snow & Green Onions

Here in south Louisiana, I plant green onions every fall in my raised garden bed. There are previous posts about setting up raised beds and planting them. Each winter before the first hard freeze, I cut the onions to put in the freezer. 

I simply cut them at ground level. I chop them and freeze them to use in sausage-making and cooking. 

This picture is halfway through. The pink in the corner is my 2.5 gallon pink bowl. 

Here is an example of me cutting the onions at ground level:

The opposite side of the raised bed – all done. 

After I realized how many I had harvested, I called friends to see who wanted some!

Then I cleaned out the chicken pens to mulch the bulbs to protect them from the freeze. 

Which was great because it actually SNOWED 6” that night. 

Here are a few pics of the snow:

I’m adding a picture 10 days after the snow:

These onions are so hardy!! 

If you are new to gardening, these are a great way to start.

I keep lights in my citrus trees to protect them from freezing, but I’m not sure if it was enough for all this snow. 

I apologize for not posting lately. I promise to catch up over the next few weeks. 

I pray you are having a wonderful Christmas season!
