    Okay, -I’ve been planning to start a veggie garden this summer, and I’ve considered everything I could think of, but I confess I’ve never thought about growing onions!
    I love onions! I love them in soups, with sausages on bread, and everything possible! Yum!
    In fact, the only thing that I don’t like about them is that they hurt my eyes when I’m chopping them up. Are they very hard to grow?
