Question answered

After searching the Internet and joining a gardening message board I found out that those onions are not Walla Walla onions but “Egyptian Walking Onions”
They are a perennial and seed themselves. When they get big enough they get top-heavy, bend down to the ground and the little bulbils root in the ground. I think they also multiply underground. They are very tasty. I broke off 2 bulbils and planted one in the ground right away and put the other one in a glass of water on my dining table which started some roots in the meantime. The one in the garden seems to be growing too.
When I wanted to buy Walla Walla onions last year they must have given me the wrong seedlings. I am glad they did because it is fun to see the Waling onions grow.
I have been using some of the bulbils in my salad. Yummy.
Bye for now.

Garden Question

We have something weird growing in our garden. Last fall some of our Walla Walla onions hid and this spring they started to grow again. I have never seen anything like it. It looked like a seed pod was coming on but then the seed pod started to sprout new onions and some of the onions have done this twice. Here is a picture:
and another one

I would really like to know what I can do with that. Would it be OK to plant what looks like seedlings? I hope somebody can enlighten me.
