Oh Pinterest…how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I fought Pinterest when I first heard about it because the last thing I needed was another piece of social media in my life. I finally joined after a friend sang the praises of bookmarking crafts and recipes without having to book them on her web browser. I love being able to pin craft ideas, recipes, and more and when I am looking for it later I don’t have to dig through thousands of links that are totally unorganized. All the ideas are neatly organized in Pinterest. Not only has it been helpful as a bookmarking tool, I have come across some great ideas I might not have found otherwise. Since joining Pinterest, I have made laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, vanilla and a number of other things (posts to come soon about each of those!). If you are on Pinterest, follow me!
On to the discussion at hand! A few weeks ago, I came across this picture of several green onions in a drinking glass. The pin said that next time you use a green onion, save the white ends, submerge them in water and place in a sunny spot. Green onions will begin to grow almost immediately.
I love green onion and it is the one thing that did well in my garden this year. It was so nice to cut a piece of green onion off to use in cooking, on a baked potato and more whenever I wanted. When we had one of our only cold snaps, they died and I had to start buying green onion again. Though it isn’t very expensive, I almost always throw half of it away.
Until now! Three days ago, I stuck a few pieces of the white part of the green onion in a glass on my kitchen window. Yesterday, I had fresh green onion on my baked potato!
