Grow your own spring onions

Grow your own spring onions

I am a big fan of vegetables, especially, when they’re fresh and locally produced! It seems like everyday the awareness about local production is growing more and more, restaurants are choosing to embrace the fresh-food movement by serving up veggies ‘straight-from-the-garden’.  A good example is the restaurant Stedsans ØsterGro which I have been looking forward to give it a try.  I couldn’t stop myself wondering, how awesome would it be to make dinner for the family with your own home grown vegetables. 

Have you also been dreaming about growing your own veggies supply but don’t know where to start, don’t have a proper garden or a place where to do that so? Well guess what, I got the perfect solution for you.

Spring Onions! Yeah, that’s right! Despite their name, spring onions also known as scallions are great growers all year round, but they are ideal for this specific time of the year in the garden, however they could easily be named the autumn, winter and summer onion, too.

If you enjoy a versatile and tasty vegetable/spicy that only need minimal space and effort, then spring onions are an excellent choice! I decided to give it a shot a week ago and you won’t believe how magically they've been growing ever since. Seriously, they really grow fast! I bought a couple of spring onions at a local market and have saved the roots ( in a small cup with water).  When you cut the spring onions and leave the roots, they can immediately refocus their efforts to growing another round of spring onions and even the tiniest plot or pot will accommodate them.

This method can be done almost indefinitely because the best part about spring onions is that you can keep growing them over and over again! Plus,  you don’t even need a garden!

I will be experimenting further with other vegetables like, sweet potatoes, ginger, mushrooms, garlic, avocado, potatoes, cabbage and celery so that i can share my outcomes about how did it go experimenting with these vegetables as well. Enjoy your home growing vegetable supply!
