Green Onions

Recently, one of favorite recipe sites, All posted this amazing tip about scallions, known as green onions or spring onions.

Steve loves green onions in salads and sandwiches and so I decided to try it.  My biggest frustration is that the bunches of green onions we buy often wilt in the refrigerator (despite storing them in a special container designed for them).

I decided to try the tip and I was pleased by how well they sprouted and grew.  This weekend, we planted them in our herb container.    I often wished that I could just cut them as I need them. .....  Now I can. ;)

Day 15


  1. I've heard of this, but never tried it before. Very cool!!

    1. It's beyond easy, Indie. I cut fresh onions for a spinach pie the other night.

  2. Just wanted to say that I have now harvested green onions for several salads and omelets.... this has been one of our best gardening successes on our patio!
