Spring is almost here which means I’m planning on what we are going to grow outside. I love having fresh veggies and herbs and growing them ourselves we not only have control over keeping them pesticide free but also we can save a bundle!
But I love to grow things inside all year. Did you know that some vegetables (and fruit) you can re-grow? It’s pretty cool and really easy!
Let’s start with the easiest to re-grow. I promise, even if you claim to not have a green thumb you can re-grow green onions! Green onions grow quickly (I’ll be sure to take photos this week just to show you how quickly!)
Here’s how you can grow green onions at home. Buy your green onions at the grocery store like you normally do. Bring them home and use them in your favorite recipe, cutting them to about 2 inches above the white parts. Then put them in a dish full of water, with the roots in the water. Let them soak up the water for a few days.
Then simply transfer to a pot. Your green onions will grow quickly (in the photo above you can see on the tops the new growth). This photo was taken only 2 days after I originally cut them!
I always have green onions growing in our kitchen! It’s nice to be able to walk over and cut what I need. I use them for a lot of recipes!
While green onions aren’t very expensive, the pennies eventually add up right? I was buying two bunches of green onions a week. Now that I regrow our green onions, I buy about 1 bunch a month. (I replace my pot of green onions about once a month)
Buying 2 bunches of green onions per week for a year: $70.72 ($70 a year on onions! CRAZY!)
After regrowing – buying 1 bunch per month: $8.18
Total savings by regrowing: $62.56!!
Tomorrow I will show you another vegetable that we regrow!
UPDATE: Here are our green onions a week later:
