Green Onions

The Green Onion seeds are ripe!  Inspire your children to learn about seed production or become interested in growing their own seeds by showing them the seeds in their coats.  After harvest I always keep a few of the plants in the ground, on purpose, to go to seed. When the coat opens up it becomes a beautiful blossom full of hundreds of little white flowers.  Inside each flower is three black seeds.  The children can gently shake them out of the coat, and plant.  Or if they are allowed to stay in the garden they will reseed themselves like magic.
