Getting Rid Of Wild Onions

This works fast, safe, and cheap. Get gallons of white vinegar, and give each clump of wild onions a small drink. Too much will just "run off" and be wasted. Now the soil is wet so it will absorb better. Give each clump a larger drink.


In a day or two, they will be flat on the ground. More vinegar may not be needed; but I like to give a last drink to be sure. My idea is the acid kills the roots; so don't bother with the green stalks.

Getting Rid Of Wild Onions

Do as the Indians! Get rid of them by eating this freely growing food source! Use a small spade to dig them out of the ground. Soak in a tub of cool water to pre-clean. Rinse thoroughly until free of dirt and debris, cutting the ends off as you would green onions. Melt bacon grease in a pan and saute until they start to get tender, add beaten eggs into the pan, moving around the pan like cooking scrambled eggs. Salt and pepper to taste. This will help you get rid of them in no time! (04/22/2010)
