Harvesting the Walla Walla Sweets
One of the best treats of the northwest, the Walla Walla sweet onion.
Now, one of the best treats of our garden here in Alamos.
Okay, not quite as big as the ones up in the northwest, but Senor thinks that is because he planted them too close together. Well, there is a new planting season just below the horizon!
We always cut off one end, and partially hollow out the onion, stuff it with butter and salt and pepper, wrap it in aluminum foil and toss it on the grill. Delicious!
All right, just to get your juices going, I will be starting the Dia de San Juan rain contest pretty soon. I will post the information in a few days, but you can start thinking about it. I know I am thinking about it because it is pretty darn hot and dry here. Water rationing is at its highest, but the water pressure is good. In fact, I am on my way out the door to water the jasmine.
Que le vaya bien!
