Growing Green Onions, and Things I’m Thinking About (4-8-2014)
Growing Green Onions is easy and fun; this would be a great activity to do with kids!
If you’re following me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you might have noticed the amazing results documented above in my experiment with growing green onions in water, but I still thought it would be fun to share the photos of how quickly they grew. This really couldn’t be easier, just cut off the root ends of the green onions (leaving enough to stick up above the jar or glass you’re growing them in), fill with water and let them grow! I replaced the water every 3-4 days.
It’s well documented that I’m a huge fan of green onions. (You can enter “green onions” into the search bar to see all my recipe idea using them.) I’m on my second growth from this set of green onions, and they’re growing well but not quite as vigorously as the first growth, but I’m thinking I can cut my purchase of green onions at least in half. And I’ll never run out of green onions again!
Here are a few more things I’m thinking about this week.
I thought this photo essay of 16 Children from Around the World and Their Bedrooms was both moving and thought provoking. See what you think.
The Difference Between Men and Women. Pretty much true, if you ask me.
As a former teacher, I always knew that small gestures could make a huge difference in the life of a child, so I loved this essay from Jason F. Wright called Meet a Boy Named Roy Who Put an End to Bullying and Changed My Life. This will probably make you cry!
Love this map of How to Drive Across the U.S. and Hit All Major Landmarks!
And from a high school economics teacher, 100 Wise Words for Everyone. My personal favorite is #83, how about you?
