Frugal Garden - green onions
I am amazed that people are surprised when I tell them this: Take your green onions that you probably spent 40 cents per small bunch and cut off at the top of the white area (leaving the green to be used at that time). Take the root bulb/white part and stick it in some dirt (enough to cover up the bulb part). Water a little & watch that baby grow new green shoots. Just keep snipping the green stuff to be used and these will grow forever and ever. After about a year (yeah, that long), they may become too oniony. When that happens, time to start over! I have several outside in the tomato planter. It's so cool to just go out & snip what you need. They will never be wilted, wimpy or yellowed again!! Yeehaw!
