Everyone should grow their own green onion. It’s stupid easy to grow indoors and outdoors, you get fresh green onion whenever you want, it’s nice!

I started these from the ends of green onions I got at the grocery store. All I did was stick them in some dirt and they started sprouting! Really easy to repot them.
