Ever notice how Springtime smells different? You can smell the earth, the worms, the grass.
Here in NC the first smell of spring is onions.
That's right, onions.
Well, actually if you research this some will say that what is growing here is really wild garlic, not wild onions.
They are everywhere though.
We haven't mowed our lawn yet, haven't needed too. Seriously...what's to mow? It's all weeds.
But every spring you can smell that nice "onion-y" smell for the first month or so. Phew!
Some people slap various chemicals onto their yards to try and kill them. We drove by a farmers field that was covered with them.
I personally think the best way to deal with them is to just dig them up.
Remove the bulbs or they just keep coming back. These bulbs are teeny tiny. I suppose you could eat them, not much there though.
I don't remember having these up north. Is this just a southern thing?
