Just a short post today. I recently found out that a number of my friends didn't know this super simple trick for growing spring onions (some folks call them green onions) indoors. So I thought I'd share.
Trim off any wilted or slimy bits from the onion.
Cut the ends so that there is at least 1″ of white bulb above the roots.
Place root end down into a glass with a little water at the bottom.
Place in a window where they will get indirect sunlight.
Watch them grow, cut and use as needed.
Here are a couple of pictures to demonstrate:

Note: Thanks to Mike for the reminder. I forgot to mention in the instructions that you need to change the water daily. Otherwise the jar gets rather stinky and the onions won't continue to grow.
