These red burgundy onions rescued from the compost pile at the park had begun to sprout on the porch. Black aphids were multiplying on the green sprouts. So they have been planted to an outdoor bed. The cold exposure will put a major hurt on the aphids. Each onion should sprout multiple plants which can then be separated and replanted. I don't know whether I will get bulb onions from that effort, but I will certainly get lots of scallions.
