Onions and fried green tomatoes

The daffodil and tulips are waking up and showing off their beauty. Spring is almost here and I am looking forward to it. I spent this past week, tilling the garden spots for my vegetables I want to plant. I love the smell of fresh ground being broken up. All I have in the ground are sweet onion and garlic. They can take harsh winter elements... as we are supposed to get snow today. I bought tomato plants and will plant them when the weather gets warmer. There is nothing better to me than cornbread and beans with fried green tomatoes and fresh garden onions! I was raised on country cooking and my mom was and still is the best cook ever. I have been so blessed!

You had me from 'fried green tomatoes'. I had never had them until my boyfriend and I started dating and I got totally hooked. And I don't usually like onions, but after eating onions from a garden, I was hooked!!
