Pinterest Win: Regrowing Green Onions

Okay, so I can't say that every Pinterest-inspired project I've tried has been made of win.  But this super easy project actually worked!

Green onions

These are green onions that I regrew from scraps!  I simply took the bits (including the roots) of green onions that we used for a meal, stuck them in a canning jar (a glass would work too), and they grew after just a few days in the window!  I also change the water every 1 or 2 days.  I've already harvested one batch of regrown green onions this way, and I think these guys are destined for tonight's dinner.

If you want to read more about regrowing green onions, just search "regrowing green onions" on Pinterest and a bunch of pins will pop up.  I don't remember which was the original pin that inspired me, oops!

Have you guys every grown veggies from supermarket scraps?

I've heard you can do that with the butt end of celery in a pot of potting soil too!

They look very nice! :D
My mom has been growing an avocado tree in her backyard from the seed of a market store bought avocado. It's grown branches but no avocados yet.

I'm going to try it. I have a bunch in the fridge right now.

I regrew green onions in my window boxes alongside my herbs last year. Green onions all summer! Other than that I haven't had the best luck with regrowing but I'll definitely be doing the green onions again this summer.

Oh, I like this. We use a lot of green onions, and my kitchen could use a bit of greenery.
