giant onion

Yesterday a reader of the blog, Annette http://myrosevalley.blogspot.com.es/ 
told me that we have many good products in the Mediterranean.
And it is absolutely true!
Today we went to my parents.
They have a small vegetable garden but it gives great products.
They grow many vegetables in a few square meters, especially now in summer.
Always have something to offer ... tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, eggplant ...
can never miss the eggs from their chickens!


 Today there haunted by a cousin of my mother, Benjamin.
He said "I go to my garden to collect some onions and now to come back."
And he's gone. And he has returned ...
has returned with a giant onions!


I have not been avoided and I made few photos.
Can not see very well the greatness of the onion, but I can assure you that is GIANT.


I've weighed in the balance will weigh on us, the bathroom.
The onion weighs ... 1700 kg!!!


Amazing!!!
 I have never seen an onion so great!
And the other two weigh 700 grams each ...
And most importantly: have a nice flavor and not much bite.
Yummy!

All straight from the vegetable garden to the table ...

The Mediterranean diet is great ...

One day I will speak of the oil that is produced for thousands of years
here in my country ... extra virgin olive oil,
the liquid gold for excellence!

Thank you for following me!

Thanks for visiting my world of wool and other nice things!

  1. WOW! That IS a big onion indeed. Amazing. Great to have fresh vegetables in the garden. We have a pretty big vegetable garden too. Right now I am waiting for the green beans to get ready to be picked. Maybe tomorrow when my dear man returns from his business trip. Thanks for linking. I don't mind at all. Have a lovely Sunday.
