The Roommate, however, has discovered something you can grow all year long no matter where you live.
Do you ever buy a bunch of green onions for however much and then use a few tablespoons and leave the rest to rot in the bottom of the vegetable drawer?
No longer, my friends.
Stick the next bunch you buy in a glass of water in the windowsill and enjoy green onions forever (or at least two months so far).
The Roommate stuck them in that window back in January sometime. We've taken snips here and there and then last week he gave them a real haircut, leaving only an inch or two of green.
As you can see, they've recovered.
This isn't even a sunny window. It's on the north side of the house and doesn't even get one second of direct sunlight all day long.
And you don't even have to walk outside to harvest them. ^_^
