my first garden

I admire those that have gardens. I will be the first to admit, I'm not great at eating my vegetables. Like, at all. But I always think if I had a garden, I would. Then when Bryan tells me I can't and that I'd never take care of it, I think of joining/purchasing (whatever you call it) one of those share things that you can pick up your package of produce from the farmers market each week. But, never have.

Enter Pinterest. And this pin, where I discovered I could grow my own never-ending supply of green onions. And I love me some green onions.

So, in case you're like me and had no idea this was possible, next time you buy green onions, instead of throwing the white part away just put it in a class of water. NO LIE, there was new growth within HOURS. So rewarding, ha.

Aren't they cute? This is about 4 days worth of growth.
And, this might be as big of a garden that I'll ever have :)

You are welcome, it's so great. Hopefully we don't OD on green onions now, ha.

That's do cool. I gotta get my green onion growing on...do you need light? I don't really gave that in my house.

*so cool. Chubby fingers and touch screens don't mix well.

Erin, the original pin I found said to put it near a window, I would assume it needs SOME light, but maybe not a lot?

Amy, we put green onions in a lot of our pastas, mix in with potatoes, top steaks, eggs, etc.
