Looks like they are doing great. I was just reading today how people with bronchial problems should eat as many onions as possible. Really good for bronchial health.

Really? I guess I have a reason to increase my onion intake.

A good Southern use of Onions is an Onion Sandwich. The Onion Sandwich is easy to make: (1). Cover two pieces of fresh White Bread with Mayonnaise;(2) Peel and Slice a good sized Onion, and (3) Put Onion on Bread and close bread slices together. Lastly, you should eat and enjoy this sandwich and consider it a delicious treat and remedy.

By the way these Onions are not Onions, they are called Scallions because of their size. Around here cooks fry them with fresh Squash and call the dish Stew Fried Onions and Squash.

4. Onions. A number of older studies have found that onions have an anti-inflammatory and anti-asthmatic effect, inhibit the release of histamines, and reduce bronchial obstruction. Onions contain prostaglandins that relax the bronchial passageways. Onions are also high in quercetin, a type of flavonoid that has anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties and in vitamin C. And onions contain L-cysteine, an amino acid that factors into the production of glutathione, a naturally occurring antioxidant in the body that is necessary for maintaining immunity. Glutathione production is often compromised in asthmatics. (Note: raw and picked onions may provoke asthma attacks in a small number of sensitive people.)

L Grant, I bet that you have eaten a RAMP before.

By her remaining silent, I bet LGrant doesn't know what a RAMP is; however, I bet Spike and Dannie can tell us.

I don't know what it is either.
