Most People Call 'Em Green Onions......

.......but they're really scallions. 
I picked up these monsters up at the Rolling Hills farmers' market today. They might be negi--a Japanese form of green onion--those are super long too, but those usually have more white part.
Check out the antique yard stick....might be a real collector's item if GM does fold.

P.S. Texas was awesome and I hope to get some stuff up soon!

At first, I was like, those don't seem that big. Then, I realized that's a YARD stick, not a regular ruler. Wow.

Those look like good eatin'.
They loved it when I said I was from WI when traveling through Texas, for some reason Texans relate.
