Don't feel too badly, Shrooms N Blooms. I KNOW I'm a plantaholic! It's a certainty.


So glad you are going to grow some green onions with me! You're seriously going to enjoy having them on-hand when you need them and they will be green, perky, and delicious. And you won't have to pay for them!

the not spending money part is the best part if you can grow from your own garden, also knowing what goes into your produce is always a good thing too...

Exactly, Shrooms N Blooms!


This video is impressive and he shows you how to do exactly what I'm doing. He kept his plants a little longer but I don't think it matters much. They just grow and grow! Check it out...

That's great, Raccoon. Your mom will really enjoy snipping them whenever she needs them, from her own little pot. They're super easy and fun to grow.


Hope you watched the video to the finish and saw his tasty looking omelette with green onions on top! So yummy.

Thumbs upRe-growing Romaine Lettuce!


Apparently, you can re-grow romaine lettuce the same way as the celery and green onions....by planting the bases. I might try this in the Fall.

Good Video...I hadn't thought of them going to seed when it gets too warm. Yet another reason they'd do well inside, assuming one has air conditioning in the hot months.

Shrooms, the video is a link Hollyberry posted just a few posts up.

I also know you can do this with the top of a pineapple and get a pineapple shrub, bush, whatever they are called. They'd do much better in the south than the north though. And it is a very long wait to get a pineapple. I think close to 2 years.

Yes, I knew about the pineapple....but never tried it.


I think the green onions will be much like basil, in that you would just pinch off the flowers as they form, and the plant will continue to grow, instead of seeding.


I got organic green onions...by the way.


Oh and here are my green onion this morning. You can see the tips are already starting to grow!

They start growing right away Raccoon, without delay. And they grow fast....more than an inch a day once they get going. I'll show them each day so you guys can see the growth.
