Project: Indoor Spring Onions

Green onions...

We all need them, but only occasionally, and then they come in a giant bundle that goes bad in the bottom of the fridge before you've used more than the 3 sprigs you needed for that one recipe that one time.

It's time for a scallion revolution! Of course, our project was found on Pinterest, but the pin came from Budget Savvy Diva, who posts on her blog with alarming regularity. This project is so incredibly easy and wallet-friendly, we can't believe we didn't think of it sooner:

There it is!! And that's basically all you need to know about it, too. After you've purchased and used your green onions, simply fill a mason jar with a bit of water and stick the ends just right on in there. I placed my mason jar on my kitchen windowsill and walked away.

Check it out!!! Those are the onions that came from the fabulous home of the fabulous Miss Lizzie. They just grew like magic!! To use them, just snip them off the bulb and put the bulbs back in the jar and then you too, can have a never-ending supply of fresh green onions for a one-time investment of roughly $1.00.

We're calling this one a TOTAL PinWin for ease of project and reward of bottomless onions!
