DIY: How to Regrow Your Green Onions

Why waste vegetable scraps when you can regrow them? 



Yes, you can easily regrow vegetables like green onions, lettuce, leeks, and garlic. You don’t need soil or a green thumb to master this. Over thirty-some years, I have watched my great-grandmother, grandmother and mother regrow and reuse their vegetables and now you should too!  

All you need is a little water and sunlight, and watch your green onions grow in just a few days. The best part is that it doesn’t take up much time, space, and it's FREE!  You don't EVER have to bother wasting that extra $ replenishing your supply, because one bundle can keep providing an endless fresh supply! 

Here's what you do:

Cut the last inch or two off of the onion, and make sure to keep the white bulb intact with the roots. Put the bulbs in a mason jar or glass with a small amount of water , as shown in the photo above, so it’s roots are wet, and place them on your window sill. Within 3-5 days you will begin to see the onion sprout from the inner rings. Make sure to change the water every couple days so the bulbs don’t get slimy and greasy.
