green onions

because T. takes to science experiments like a middle schooler, today we harvested this giant batch of green onions from a pot in the front yard:

You know when you buy green onions at the store, they have that little white root bulb at the bottom? Well, it turns out if you cut off and plant that little white root part, a new onion will grow. And if you let it grow for a long time, it will turn into a really big green onion.

Luckily, we eat generally ridiculous amounts of the things around here, so these won’t go to waste.
