You learn something new every day

Recently I read a tip from someone about green onions or scallions.  They advised that when you buy from the grocery store, simply cut the lower bottom part off (where the roots are)  and then plant that portion back in the ground.  They advised others that this will then sprout a brand new onion.
I was sceptical but I figured what the heck, it's not like I'm wasting anything so I tried it!  Believe it or not, it worked!



Within about 2 to 3 weeks I'll transplant these guys outside with some of my other seedlings and voila!  Fresh new onions to use in my scrambled eggs!  
I'm going to try this with leeks next!  Too cool!
