Onions (Allium cepa)
Saved from Death. Last spring I was nonchalantly strolling at Home Depot when I saw bundles of onion seedlings at the clearance shelf. The seedlings were almost dry with a tiny hint of green at the inner leaves. I touched them and between my fingers I felt the presence of life. So for $1.50 per bundle I purchased my right to grant those poor plants a chance to live. To revive those dry roots I soaked the seedlings in a bucket of water overnight prior to planting. Since there was no space in my kitchen garden available at that time, I planted them in pots with good friable soil.
