Never Ending Green Onions????

Well I've been MIA again...sorry about that. I had the unfortunate opportunity to get salmonella poisoning late March/Early April and spent some time as a guest of the local hospital. I feel like I've been playing catch up ever since. Sadly my blogging has taken a back seat. I truly hope and plant to start making it a more regular occurrence. Especially this time of year!! :)

Just because I haven't been blogging doesn't mean I have been gardening. This year for some reason they didn't till our community gardens this year, so I had to learn how to do it by hand. Having mostly done pots this was new and umm...back breaking experience. But I got the job done this weekend and started planting. I plan on sharing more of that later

So I recently saw on Pintrest (who else is loving that site??) that if you don't cut up the white parts of green onions and place them in water, they'll continue to grow and produce more green parts to use. So I decided to finally put it to the test, and take you along on the experiment with me.

On Tuesday I made some Quinoa with green onions and avocados.  I placed the white parts of the green onions in water in a cleaned out spice jar I had lying around

Tuesday Evening...
By the time I woke up on Wednesday morning they had already started sprouting some new green parts.

Not the clearest picture but the green onion on the right the dark green part was new overnight
I'm looking forward to seeing how this experiment goes...I'll keep you apprised
