Free Green Onions
Here’s how to get some free green onions. Next time you get a batch from the grocery store, don’t throw out the roots. Instead, put them in a pot of dirt. They will soon sprout up new onions for you. I’ve done this multiple times–in fact, as you can see, I have two new green onions starting in my kitchen.

Sharing is caring!

  1. I have some in the fridge right now that are about to go in a pot for that very purpose.
    When you ‘harvest’ green onions, do you just cut off tops or do you pull the whole thing?

  2. Kate, I usually pull them out because I like to cook with the bulb–but I hear that you can just harvest the green and it will keep making onions. Surprisingly sturdy, those green onion plants.

  3. Hi Cathy. Yeah, I would give the onions a couple of hours of sunlight a day. My kitchen window gets about 3-4 hours of afternoon sunlight and they seem to be doing well there so far.
