Or at the very least, spring onions (also known as green onions or scallions, if you please). In an effort to encourage growth and new things and all that fun spring-y stuff, I attempted to plant a bundle of organic green onions that I picked up from the grocery store! I made sure to choose ones that still had their roots intact. I booted it home, cut off the tops to leave about 2 inches of green onion above the root, and planted them in soil.
A good watering and 24 hours later, this is what it looked like:
Fingers crossed that the roots develop and we get a nice little crop of green onions to snip at every so often. If this goes well, I might try some other supermarket favourites, like lemongrass and parsley.
Yay to cell division and elongation!
