Title Eva, Spring and Little Green Onions
Description Even while the snow still lies in patches on che north side of the bushes and before the bees can bo heard buzzing contentedly by the plum blossoms aning, so that one or two would furnish a brisk and pungent addition to soups or salads. In pioneer t xin e s, become vegetables could be purchased every month of thn year in the super-milk. Those folks who had onions in their gardens usually had plenty for their own use, and could My start of inultiplier onions in Ephrairn came from our good neighbor, Eva Anderson. She was living alone when \;e moved next to her on 3rd East, and a nice bunch of onions grew near her outside water-tap. The onions and a few little clumps of rhubarb were all that were left from what had at one time been a large, productive garden, when her parents and brothers and sisters all lived in that And each year as the onions begin to produce, even before the last of the carrots have been brought out from nnder their deep cove ring of leaves, a flood of memories comes back to me* Memories that began on a farm in loka, in the Uintah Basin, when I was the child who took some bunches to Murphy's store. Memories of riding horseback: past the brown fields, and through the sandhills and I saw the biy riog-like animal, larger than a coyote, sitting on its haunches and half snarling at me, as I took the other road on down to Upalco. Memories of how ¦- t *-~ 2 sd to be brave as long as the crossed a couple rrj; sandhills, how I urged my h-v: ¦• ^a run as fast as he could until we reached the rirst homes in the little town of Upalco. 123
