Kitchen scrap regrowth: Green onions

It’s been 2 days and I’m already seeing growth.

Supposedly, you could regrow green onion tops in water, as long as the water stays fresh to prevent moldy growth.

Cut the root tops and sumberge them in water. Voila ~ easy way to grow your own food (that you don’t eat often but would like to add to dishes), cut cost, and reduce waste!

Have a wonderful weekend and happy pre-spring! I’m relieved it’s Friday… one heck of a long week.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

  1. Hi – I like the closing happiness is… imager and your onions look good!
    In 2020 I remember seeing a lot about these green onions – a colleague had them and my stow daughter too!
    Yours look so good!
    I have had the green onions in dirt in a container out back for about eight years and they have survived some very low temps – so had the Peppermint – but not much else


    1. The happiness image was so cute and thought it would make a good ending to my post! Thanks for noticing and commenting.
      I’m surprised at how well the green onion is growing. I assumed it had to be planted in soil, but amazing what Google search results will teach you. But planting in water started with propagating my Pothos plant in water. They’re actually swamp plants, so it’s totally viable in water.
      Your green onions are hardy and weathering the low temps! Peppermint sounds good too.

  2. That’s interesting Esther. I did it with Romaine lettuce stalks and grew baby ones, which was enough fresh greens for my canary in Winter … they were tender as opposed to dark green and leavy.


      1. Home grown in the middle of Winter … yes it worked well, not a big “crop” though! Of course, he had a little stomach and didn’t eat much, so it worked well!
