Growing (Regrowing) Green Onions (Chives)

   I am sure a lot of you have heard about growing or regrowing green onions.  I have been doing this for about a year and will never buy them again.  To begin with, grow some green onions in your garden or buy a small bunch from your grocery store.  Use the green part as you normally would but when you are done, just put the white part into a small container with a little bit of water and place it on your windowsill.

The part you place in the water.

Now just wait for the greens to grow out again and then cut off the greens and repeat.  I cut a good deal off every 3-4 days.  I just use scissors to do it  and then I place the chives into my dehydrator and dry them out for future use.

Here they are just a few days later.

Cutting them up is quick and easy with scissors.

 They go great on baked potatoes or you can throw them into a soup or casserole. Just one more way to save money.

  1. Well I was born in 1923, that makes me 91 years old, I have lived through a depression, I was 6, when as the old folks say "when the bottom fell out" and my Mothers saying was you never throw away anything! so ,I have a few tricks up my sleeve like don't use so many paper towels, use an old raggy towel in kitchen to dry your hands when it wears out, use for padding for a potholder, old flannel shirts.sheets,make great rag rugs, so do old worn out socks!!1and be countrified and proud and thank God for it.ejmills@windstream.net.

    2. I use old worn out sheets to rake my grass clippings or put my pile of weeds on to pull over to the compost pile . It is easier than putting in a wheelbarrow and you can haul a lot more at a time.
