I went outside to do my assignment for today’s lesson, identifying a plant, and found a certain plant called chives out in our unused garden. This is what I carelessly identified, turning and pointing at random, and I landed on the green onions. Then I noticed what they were, and dared my brother to eat them, which he did willingly, thus proving me right. I then took some inside and bagged them and stuck ‘em in the fridge to use later. These little tubular plants have no leaves, and a botanical name of Allium schoenoprasum and that means their relatives are garlic, Chinese onions, leeks, scallions and shallots.
This also means that they have a very pungent taste, like their cousins, and their major distinctive quality is that they have no leaves. Of all the plants in our backyard, I happened to stumble upon the coolest and edible plant.
