So what do you do with those onions that start sprouting in your kitchen. Maybe you forgot about them or you may have just not been able to use them for your cooking before they started to sprout. Most people just take these and throw them away. Some people however, grow sprouting onions and even use some of it for cooking too.
Until today, I have been a member of the throw away, they have gone bad group. At least I throw mine into the compost. From today onwards, I will join the ‘regrow them’ gang. Not too sure about the eating part, it may take a while to get used to that. LOL
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Sprouted Onions
- Potting Soils
Take your sprouted onions, and peel off the outer layers. Be careful when you do this not to remove any roots that may be growing in between them. Use your knife to cut into onion and carefully remove the sprouting section.
This is the part that you want to plant in your container with the roots down and the green leafy parts above the soil. Keep them watered and with access to lots of sunshine. They will be ready to be harvested when you see the bulbs pop up or when the top leafy section has dried off.
