Here is a picture of the five original onion shoots (Is that the correct term? Shoots?) in a canning jar on my kitchen window from day 1, last Tuesday.
|Hi, baby onions!|
- I know that green onions are cheap to buy. I only paid $0.98 for the original bunch... So that's not the reason.
- It's green. Yeah, so are the tops... That's not a reason either.
- My five year old is a science/math nut and wants to know how stuff works...
|Hey, your roots are showing!|
In the end, we turned this into a little science experiment of sorts. We sat together on the first day Googling the heck out of this tutorial.
But yeah, you can do it too. The best part is having a little "farm" in your own kitchen, an never running out if it's right there, right?
Now off to sprout an avocado seed in a baby food jar.
What, don't tell me your mom never did this....
