Some recent warm days have given me quite the case of spring fever. I needed to shake it, and the only way I could think of was to plant something...anything. I had recently on Pinterest where someone grew green onions in a glass of water. Hmmm...I had some onions that were getting old in the fridge, so why not?
I trimmed up several onions, added them to a short glass of water, and placed them in a sunny window.
Just a few days, later, this is what they looked like...
You'll notice that there are fewer ends in the glass than when I started. Several never sprouted (likely because they were pretty old in the fridge), and I tossed them before they funked the water too much. I also change the water every few days, and give the roots a rinse.
According the the site I saw this idea on, you can simply cut off what you need for cooking, and the roots will continue to grow. I bought a fresh bunch at the store today to add to what I have, and hopefully I won't have to buy any more green onions for a long time!
P.S. This project didn't cure my fever 100%, but it helped!!
