Window Garden for a Black Thumb!

I read about doing this somewhere and couldn’t resist giving it a try.

After using the top of a bunch of green onions, put the white bulbs in water and grow your next bunch!

This was taken two days after I put them in the water, and you can already see new growth.

And this is two weeks after I started it!

Hmmm.  I’m not sure what to do now.  I have fresh green onions, but I don’t need green onions very often.  I guess I should have thought of that before I started this project.

But I’m still thrilled with my “window garden”.  I actually grew green onions!

    It kind of goes to show you that some things just keep on living past the time that we mere mortals perceive them as dead.

    They’re great in salads because they’re milder than other onions. But I like the bulb part too. 🙂

    I want to try that too!!

  3. Candy says:

    I’m impressed! They’re pretty, too!

    Wow! Those things really shot up there, didn’t they? Like Hilary said, you can add the greens to salads. They’re also good in most any soup. They might be good in your wonderful meatloaf, too. I know you’ll find a way to use them often enough to keep this project going.

    Hilary — I usually use the bulb part too, but now that I’ve discovered this nifty new “trick”, I’ll just see how long I can use just the greens and the bulbs will keep producing. The salad idea sounds good. 🙂

    Beth — That’s just the way I felt when I heard about this. I love to do things that don’t take much effort and also show quick results! 🙂

    Candy — I thought they were kind of pretty too — they have a nice curve. 🙂

    Linda — They may not work for the meatloaf because I use onion soup mix for that, but I like the idea of putting them in soup. And you KNOW I like to make soup! 🙂

    Now that’s an interesting experiment Sandra – Dave

    Dave — And for a not-very-talented gardener like me, it’s great that it is a SUCCESSFUL experiment! 🙂
