    easiest thing to grow like, ever! Just follow my easy steps, and you will have delicious green onions at all times!
    What you'll need:
    Two bunches of green onions (or however many you would like, we eat a lot)
    A plastic cup (Any kind)
    and some kitchen scissors


    1. gather your stuff together

    2. Cut the onions at the top of the white part

    you should have this now...

    repeat on all of your bunches

    3. you should have all about the same length. but it doesn't really matter... Now rearange the
    onion bottoms in your cup like this. V

    4. Add water to just below the tops of them.

    5. Place in a sunny window.

    and watch them grow before your eyes! I mean, you can almost see them growing! We
    have two that we did this to about a week and a half ago, and they are full size again!

    Very nice! Are you going to plant them in dirt or leave them in water?

    I think i'll plant them in the dirt, they start to turn yellow-ish, and maybe it's cause they aren't getting stuff they need from the ground?
