Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

Garden oddity

Saint Louis, MO(Zone 6a)

My yard is infested with wild onions.
They multiply way faster than I can pull them.
But today I ran across a rather inexplicable scene.
A wild onion which has somehow impaled a mulberry.
I have no idea how it would happen?
Any ideas?

I am thinking that since a mature mulberry starts as separate drupes that expand and grow together, that maybe the tip of the onion touched and got caught between the individual drupes when they were small and separate, then the drupes grew and expanded and merged into a mulberry, meanwhile with the tip of the onion bud getting wedged tighter into the mulberry? (That's such a great example of a run-on sentence that I can't stand to alter it.)

Hmm, it's a more plausible idea than any I could come up with.
