I have expressed my interest in being a green mom over the past year. So when I found out I could regrow green onions from the bottoms....you could only imagine how intrigued I was! After watching a few videos posted by MyInspiredCreation by Jane, I quickly jumped into this project.
I have a nice big garden window that I was wanting to put to good use. I started growing herbs and lettuce already. Now, it's time for the green onions to take over! I bought one bunch of green onions for $.69. I used the tops in my recipe for Crock Pot Tacos, and I saved the white bottoms just for this little project.
Day 1: After cutting off the tops, I planted most of my onion bottoms into a container. I put three of them into water. (I was told they would regrow either way) Here is the three I put into water.
Day 2: As you can see, overnight my green onions quickly started to regrow! (you can see my planted onions and arugula in the background!)
Day 4: I am on day 4 of my regrowing process. My planted onions are growing slightly slower than the water ones, but still growing nice and healthy!
Here are my water onions on day 4. Nice and healthy! I plan to post pictures to my Motherhood and Money on Facebook next week so you can see the progress.
*I am a beginner when it comes to gardening. This regrowing project is super simple and almost carefree!
