Its ancestral wild original form is not known, although escapes from cultivation have become established in some regions. The onion is most frequently a biennial or a perennial plant, but is usually treated as an annual and harvested in its first growing season.

Happy Sunday!! I wanted to share this delicious recipe I found on Pinterest from Running With Spoons, these tasty chocolate muffins with a secretly healthy ingredient! With my parents being on the Paleo diet, I have been cooking/baking an abundance of healthy (mostly delicious haha) recipes for them!
