Growing Onions

Posted By on June 16, 2009

I’m a big fan of gardening for increased self-sufficiency. One of my favorite things to grow is something that provides food without costing anything extra. Green onions are perfect. You buy green onions anyway, right? Next time you buy them, use only the green parts and then take the white bulb parts and bury it in your garden. In no time, they’ll be growing. Then, when you want green onion, instead of picking them, just cut leaves off.

Just make sure you don’t cut all the leaves off at once, because the green leaves are the plant’s source of energy. If you use them faster than they grow, buy more and plant their bulbs, too.
