Onions and Garlic (and Mrs. Roosevelt Redux)
Right now my teeny tiny garden is bustin’ with the most beautiful organic onions grown from little bulbs called “sets.” You can still buy small bags of these at nurseries and don’t worry if the sets look a bit shriveled. I pre-sprout mine in a shallow dish of water, placing each set so that the pointy end is up. Soon they plump up and pop some roots and a green shoot.
