If you've ever fought with wild onions, you already know how hardy members of the allium, or onion family, can be. When it comes to growing your own green onions or scallions, that can be a blessing. To begin with, scallion bulbs take about a month
to mature, which means that you can continue to refresh your garden throughout the summer. They're easy to use -- you can eat the onions raw, or can snip the leaves into dozens of foods. And, as an added bonus, they can save you about $4
for every square foot that you plant.
