new green onions

After seeing this onion recycling tutorial online, we decided to give it a try. When DD made tomato soup, she saved the root end of the onions and we planted them in a little pot. They have started to grow. I’ll have plenty for a salad, sandwich or garnish when they are larger. DH doesn’t eat onions, so a bag of them often isn’t used completely before they go bad. I’ve added a few more since this picture was taken.

It has been fun to watch them grow, especially this time of year when my eyes are begging for green vegetation. DD checks the pot almost every day to see how much they’ve grown.

    Thanks for the link. We eat lots of green onions and this would be a great way to have them on hand. I think I will put a decorative pot in my kitchen!

    What a great idea! We love green onions! Now, if I can keep the cats from eating them! LOL!
