A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

IT'S ALIVE!

It's time for: "ONION UPDATE."


If you remember several blogs ago, I planted a red onion I found growing in my refrigerator crisper since Christmas.


Well, Stinky loves his new full-sun environment in the pot full of soil.








This newest picture was taken last week, but right after hurricane Barry's drenching the other day, it shot up even more, some three or four inches higher than shown here.


Even weirder are the onion's longest two sprouts, which move back and forth from day to day, almost alien-like. One day they will be crossed and the next they will point in opposite directions.

IT'S AMAZING!!!!!

OK, so I'm easily amused.

Stay tuned for more onion updates throughout the summer.

sounds like you're becoming too attached to this little guy...you really will cry when you eat this onion...wouldn't it be cool if the actual onion bulb grows into the shape of Jesus or the Blessed Mary..(like those other food items people always seem to be finding..i.e. a potato chip with the face of Jesus or a bagel sold on ebay with the same holy shape)..maybe it will even weep blood like those mysterious statues we always hear about in some European church or grotto and all the faithful will come flocking to your deck to witness this miracle of miracles..that is why it's called Miracle Gro , isn't it?

You should try leaving dollar bills in there for a period of time-who knows you may make the statement 'money grows on tress' come to be!

How about becoming a botany expert?
