Besides the obvious quality time with Brian and Bennett, one of the enjoyments of being home right now is that I can actually follow through on some of my Pinterest pins instead of just daydreaming about them.
If you know me at all, you know that I don’t have a green thumb. If you thought I did, you’ve got me mistaken for Brian or Momma. Me? Definitely not. Once you’ve pled guilty to the death of a cactus, I’m pretty sure you’re out of that club.
But by God’s grace through my hands, I witnessed green growth today!
Well, yesterday morning I chopped one green onion into my scrambled eggs (with cheese, of course). Then following through on the advice I had read, I went ahead and put the bulb and the entire bunch of onions in water, in a glass, in the kitchen window.
Look what I observed JUST 24 hours later! The outer layer hadn’t grown yet, so you can actually see how quickly the onion is regenerating based on its brighter interior layer!
Feel free to pin this to remind yourself to do the same the next time you buy some green onions.
Here’s hoping that the curse is broken and that I’ll no longer be a plant murderer! (I’m even rinsing the bulbs and giving them fresh water so that they don’t rot! …So motherly these days…)
Do you guys know of more ways to keep up your produce supply? Is this common?
Update: I’m getting a lot of feedback via Facebook about all sorts of things I can grow now!
