Never ending green onions growing in your kitchen

WP_001188

I like to add some green onions to my omelets in the morning, though it is not too convenient to pick them out in the winter garden when it is raining or snowing on these cold mornings.  I decided to pick a couple plants the day before and placed them in water to last a little longer.

To my surprise not only did the onions last longer they actually kept growing.  So I just cut off what I need and more is waiting for me after a few days.  All I do is changes the water every few days and enjoy my seemingly endless supply of green onions (ok…will keep growing until the bulb runs out of energy…)

    It works with parsley, too.

    Neat! Why don’t suppliers and stores do it this way? They’d be much more fresh.

    This is so cute! And such good information! Thank you very much for sharing your kitchen/garden tips. I can share in your enjoyment of little green circles on your morning egg! Good work!

    I did the same thing a few weeks ago, but I did end up replanting the onions. I blogged about it at this end of this post: http://armsofasister.com/2012/02/21/recipes-for-fun-wacky-science-recipesforfun/

    @Sherry – thanks for adding the info about parsley. We’ll do that next!

    I’ve been doing this for a while- it works great! I find I can get 2 or 3 cuttings, before the energy stored in the bulb of the onion is depleted. And yes, definitely plant them!
