“Gonion” Harvest

By , September 3, 2013

The autumn harvest is in full swing on the “homestead.” This year, we’re very excited about the quality and quantity of garlic and onions we’ve produced.

garlic and onions are essential to almost all of our favorite homestead meals. We joked recently of referring to the combination as “gonions” just to save time, since they almost always go together anyway. We’ve always had fairly decent onion harvests, but garlic has been harder to raise here. This year, Michelle produced twice our average garlic harvest. She’s already pickled the scapes, and early bulbs have gone into many good lunches and dinners. We look forward to fresh, homegrown “gonions” this winter!
