I was hungry today, and imagine my surprise at finding a blooming onion!
No, not that blooming onion, but this blooming onion!

Yes, ladies and gentleman, that there is a blossoming blooming onion! From my fridge! I was putting away some groceries. When I reached down to put the lettuce in the crisper bin, I found a living, blossoming, blooming onion!
I usually put my onions in the door compartments of the fridge. The last time I bought onions was two weeks ago; I had no room in the fridge door, so I put some in the bottom crisper bin. I totally thought the bin was empty, as I thought I had used all my onions last weekend; hence, the grocery shopping trip today. Looks like one escaped and survived! I am stunned to find a plant living and thriving...in my fridge of all places! How is this even possible?
Well, this little miracle of an onion is going to be planted out front so it'll get some sunlight. It's made it this far in the cold fridge; time to give it a chance to grow in the sun, out in nature, the way onions were meant to live!
I think I'm going to cry...oh, wait, that's just from cutting one the of onions that I bought today.
