Wild onion

P1040157 (Custom)P1040141 (Custom)We have learned to be grateful in the park for anything that flowers, even wild onion (Allium triquetrum).  A pestiferous weed in many a garden, it makes a lovely little bed of snow alongside the perimeter path on the north side of the park.  It is, of course, entirely edible.  Both raw and cooked it adds a mild onion or garlic-like flavor to salads or soups.  But please don’t harvest it from the park.  If you don’t have them in your yard, ask a neighbor.
