DIY Green Onions on Your Window Sill
Okay, everyone. An apology in advance, but seriously, it's time for a Martha Stewart moment. Thanks to a reader comment on our urban farming-pinkberry connection post, we learn a little trick that will be exciting to try out. LAist commenter LadyAMC points out an article on Cookthink about re-growing green onions on your window sill. Basically, keep about an inch of the bulb-end, place it in a cup of water on a sunny windowsill, let them grow and clip bits off as you need. "It works, I've got 6 of'em growing right now," she exclaimed. A photographer-blogger in Colorado who has several green onions growing warns of the potential smell, but has an easy solution: "Don't forget to rinse the roots and change the water every other day or so."
We're growing a few green onions in our window sill and will photo document its progress over the next few weeks.
