We just pulled the last of our "little" green bunching onions....
Just thought you'd like to know ORMUS 'n onions do go together....
Realizing that these onions
might not be around for much longer, I immediately wrote back to Hal
asking him for more information and about five hours later he sent me
the following reply:

Good thing you emailed when you did, these are supper. But anyhoo after
reading your email I went to the grocers and bought
a bunch, and yep we'll plant this new bunch to put life back into
Our postal scale says about 2-1/4 pounds for the
6 onions we picked from our garden and we did adjust the scale for the
Hal also weighed six supermarket
green onions and he said that they weighed"about 1/8th of a pound". I weighed six of the largest green
onions I could find at the supermarket and they weighed 65.8 grams or 2.32
ounces. Two and a quarter pounds is 36 ounces. Divide 36 by 2.32 and
you get 15.51. In other words, Hal's greem onions weighed over fifteen
times as much as ordinary supermarket green onions.
The plants were grown in a raised bed, the bed
mix start was a good Florida peat muck soil and we amened the soil with
We do use compost from our yard and vegetable
scrapes, we also use a micro nutrient fertilizer because here in
Florida we get lots of rain so we've found the
micro's leach fairly rapid, so we augment as needed.
We applied ormus from the first wash from
precipitate that I make from Doug Borst's black sand, that he mixes and
pulverizes. If you need that composition, phone
him at 509-681-4110. (I got a 5 gal pail from him a while back.) I add
a good cup of this first wash water to 5 gal of water and
irrigate the bed with this twice a year. I have been doing this for two
and a half years and, as time goes by, things are growing better and
Really if someone has a hydroponic system I'd
recommend using Doug's pulverized sand in a leach bed.
I've experimented many different ways with Doug's
mix and the mix from the Essene, I prefer Doug's.
I take 1/3 cup of Doug's pulverized mix (about
600 mesh and really paramagnetic) and add it to a
good heaping cup of pink sea salt (Bolivian
Rose) that I got from Saltworks. (The salt itself didn't produce much
precipitate on it's own.) I put this mix of salt
and rock powder in a stainless pot and get the pot bottom cherry
red for a hour, beat it out of the pot, grind it up and burn it again
like before. I do this at least 3 times (close to the upcoming full
Then, when I need to precipitate, I take 2
tablespoons of this mix to one cup of NaOH, burn the hell out of it in
my stainless pot for an hour, then after it
cools beat it out of that pot into a larger stainless pot and gently
boil it with about 1 gal of distilled water. After boiling it for 45
minutes I let it cool.
It takes me about a day to strain this thru 15
coffee filters then I filter with my hand vac - 1 micron, then take the
pH down to 1. This takes 4 to 5 hours. I let the
solution rest at least 30 min and then bring it back up to 10.2. I let
this settle over night and on the next day I
decant off the top water. Next, I put in distilled water and now the
new top water turns milky and never clears. This
has happened even with the sand from the Essene.
I have noticed lots of energetic radiation coming
from the solution, you can feel the heat. Heck, the last batch I was
titrating stopped my magnetic stirrer at 2/3rd's
I hope this may answer some questions. Feel
free to use pics if you wanna...

A comparison of length.
Weighing Hal's green onions.
called Hal and asked him a few questions to clarify more about the
nature of these green onions. Hal said that they were grown from seeds
purchased for this planting rather than from seeds collected from green
onions previously grown in Hal's garden.
I asked Hal and his wife to describe how these onions tasted in
relation to how supermarket onions taste. Hal's wife said:
"They taste bigger...it's not quite
as sweet, it's a little bit stronger onion taste, but it doesn't make
it where it's not an eating onion."
"It's really not so much the taste per se, it's the content;
there's more life."
