DIY: Regrowing Green Onions

On the heels of regrowing celery, I was inspired to regrow another veggie: green onions. For anyone looking for a fast return on investment, these green onions regrew quick!

A quick cut, a quick soak, and a quick planting in soil has yielded weeks of regrowth on green onions, with no stopping yet. I recommend cutting off grown onions, even if you do not plan to use it, as this encourages new growth.
