Last Monday, I made a recipe that used a few green onions. Inspired by Jimmy Cracked Corn’s post, I decided to save the ends and replant them. I didn’t feel like going out in the wind and cold to get more soil right then, so I just stuck them in some water. I was amazed to see how quickly they started regrowing, even in just plain tap water!
Today I transplanted some of my overwintered chives (which are slightly pathetic, by the way) so that I had a pot and soil for my green onion ends. Here they are just after replanting. Notice how much they’ve grown since I cut them– they were cut down to the white part when I used them on Monday!
I’m excited to have cut-and-come-again green onions
