Growing Green Onions From Green Onions in Your Kitchen

Here is another quick and simple way that you can grow some of your own food. It’s not really growing, it’s more like regrowing.

First you need to have either grown your own scallions or bought some at a local farmers market.

You can now re-grow green onions from the existing green onions in your kitchen on the countertop. This ideas was give to me by Leah Stoltz, one of my friends on Facebook.

You don’t need a backyard, fire escape, balcony or sunny windowsill to do this. All you need is a cup, water and your green onions.

Once your green onions have about three to four inches left on them simply place them in about one inch of water and set on your countertop. After two days, dump out and refresh the water.

You should be able to see them start growing again. Cut and use as necessary. Repeat until they no longer grow.

By doing this, you’ll be able to save some money, grown some of your own and save some trips to the market.
