~When you grow them yourself you can go out and pick them as they grow; green onions in February and March, more substantial ones as they get bigger.
~Because we used them as they were growing, we planted about 200 and harvested about 100.
~Another good reason to grow them is that they are sweet enough to eat raw but are still really flavorful when cooked.
Some we sent through the food processor and will freeze for later.
We just harvested ours this weekend. Next time I'll think I'll double what I planted this year.
