A few days ago when I was at Wal-mart, I decided to purchase my onions and potato sets. I will get more onion sets before I am done but they didn’t have more varieties…I garden shop will. At least this is a start.
I got to the check out and a young girl was there. I put my things on the counter and she stopped when she saw the onions. She said to me, “What are these?…Are these like do it yourself onions?…WOW, that is really cool!”
I was dumb struck…Really? Do kids these days not even know a onion can be grown in a garden? Did she really think it was a “do it yourself kit”? I honestly didn’t know how to reply so finally I just said, “Yes. It is cool. I grow lots of different vegetables in my garden.”
Wow….that’s all I can say about the whole experience…I am dumbstruck.
