As a frugal family, we are all for reusing things, and regrowing green onions is one of our specialties. Growing green onions is extremely easy, and it does not take much room or effort. Our city garden is extremely small, but our green onions are thriving and not only do we save money by not having to buy the green onion, but it also enhances our meals by adding fresh flavor, and we love that we can grow our own food without worrying about the chemicals that have been sprayed on it.
We usually buy a bunch of green onions at the farmer’s market or at our local grocery store.
Then we chop off the tops for our cooking, we leave a couple of inches from the bottom up.
We leave the green onions in a glass of water for a couple of days.
In about two weeks, we can start cutting off the tops of the green onion again. As long as the green onions have water and sun, they will keep on growing.
If you live in an area with frost, keep the green onion in a small pot that you can take inside and put in a sunny windowsill over the winter.
