Yes, I’m serious. You never, ever have to buy green onions again.
I thought this idea was crazy. That there was no way it was ever going to work. But I said to myself: “Self, part of your job as The Housewife Modern is to test stuff…so let’s give it a try.”
It’s easy, takes practically no time. But just in case, I took step-by-step pictures as well as some “after a certain amount of time” pictures.
Don’t those look good? I grew them myself- this was after approximately two weeks (the picture above)
It’s easy to do. Take some green onions. I used the slightly wilted ones I had forgotten about in my fridge.
Trim off the roots just a little. Then cut about 1″ above the white part (see picture below).
Prop up in a pint mason jar with a couple of inches of water. Place in a window with sunlight.
The 4th picture is after about a week.
The 5th is the great one of about 2 weeks later!
And the last one was yesterday (about two months after starting this). We’ve been eating a lot. I think I’m going to trim the roots and “start over” with the ones I have. That should encourage growth.
