Nice!

The next time you have green onions,

don’t throw away the white ends.

Simply submerge them in a glass of water and place them in a sunny window.

Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately and can be harvested almost indefinitely.

We just use kitchen scissors to cut what we need for meals.

I periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them fresh water.

Rose-of-Sharon or Shrub Althea Pink, red and purple fully double blooms all on one plant, July-September. Rose-of-Sharon is valued for large flowers produced when few other shrubs are in bloom. Tolerates seashore conditions. Attracts hummingbirds. Full sun.
