Onion field, rural Washington, by Emily Gatch

This photo arrived in an email from a good friend who’s in plant pathology grad school. I had to email her to ask what it was. Turns out it’s just a field of plain old ordinary onions that’ve been allowed to mature and go to seed. She wrote, “Onions that have gone to seed are so cool — you may have seen ornamental alliums around town, with big bulbous balls, often purple. A field of onion flowers looks like an outerspace commodity.”
