It's always exciting to grow something yourself...especially when it's inside your house and takes little to no effort. I laugh because even though I grow wine grapes for commercial use...nothing has excited me more than growing these green onions on my windowsill. It's the little things.
I go through green onions like mad, I am always sprinkling them on something. And the ones you grow yourself have a much more pungent (in a good way) flavor than the green onions you buy at the store.
Here I only have four in a small drinking glass but you can fill it with as many as you want, they will all grow. And what's more amazing is how quickly it happens. You will see growth in about 4-6 hours after placing the ends in water.
The growth you see here is after six days.
Chop your green onions to where you see here, right where the whitish-green part begins.
Place them in a small glass or jar with about an inch of water and place in a windowsill.
On the windowsill and this is two days of growth.
The roots get very long at the bottom of the glass.
And here is what they look like after harvest. This is so easy a great way to keep fresh green onions around.
Give it a try and let me know how it goes. Your kids will find it exciting too.
