Green Onions - Good To Know

I found a good idea on Pinterest and added
my own to combine them into one.
Trim the ends from your green onions and 
instead of tossing them,
plant them in potting soil.
Keep the spoil moist and place them
 in a sunny spot.
This could go on forever...
trim, plant, harvest. repeat.
Chop the remaining green onions and blot dry
what you are not using right away
with a paper towel.
Use a funnel to fill an empty pour container.
(I cut the top off a 2L soda bottle)
I used a small plastic bottle for my container.
 Pop the bottle in the freezer and it's handy
 to shake out the amount you need.
 I keep these ideas in my
"Good To Know" board on Pinterest
That's Good To Know!

  11. I love this and can't wait to try. The kids are going to love this, too.

  12. Great idea, it's kind of like a starter sour dough batch. I will definitely doing this. I think I'll wait till spring, don't know if I would get enough sunlight in the winter in IL. I also freeze a lot of cut veggies in the freezer. Thanks for sharing such a great tip. Thanks for sharing your creative inspirations with Sunday's Best party.

  14. Great idea, Rita! Thanks for the tip!

  15. Thanks for the idea, I do the same thing for lemongrass. Just trim down to about two inches, peel the first layer off to expose root nubs on the very bottom. That's where the roots start growing when you pop them in water.

  16. They get small every time you cut and harvest them.. Make sure you get nice fat ones to begin with
