So, maybe you already knew about this…it’s possible I’m the last one to realize this little trick. I can definitely be a geek that way.
Did you know that you can keep your green onions growing after you bring them home from the store?
My friend Kathy told me her mom does this, so I thought I’d give it a try.
First I cut the green tops off of the onions – putting the greens back into the refrigerator for future use.
And, then you can put the rooted pieces in water or even plant them in the garden and they’ll continue to grow.
I had actually put some in water a week ago.
You can actually tell where I cut the last batch at. Apparently you can just keep snipping off the “greens” for use and then they’ll keep producing more.
I’m putting these into the garden now to see how long I can keep this going.
Will they continue growing forever and ever?
Will I never have to buy green onions again (unless a gopher munches them)?
I’ll keep you posted,
