spring is in our kitchen!

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:

green onion growth!You see how the middle rings of green onion are longer than the outer rings?  That’s growth, baby!

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!
