Is it OK to eat wild onions that grow in our yards?
I read online that it is, as long as it IS onion and not garlic. The article said they'll smell like onions if that's what they are. It didn't mention any difference in appearance, however. I just pulled these from my yard and they do smell like onions. But I don't want to eat them if they'll harm me, so I thought I'd ask to be sure. When I first brought them inside, two of my cats went nuts over them since I didn't know how the plant would affect them, I put them on the deck for now. Then I read online that they're VERY toxic to cats -- any part of the plant is. It said most cats don't want to eat them but these two did. But good mom wouldn't let them have any. :-)
