Well, its an experiment, so I'm trying not to get my hopes up. I saw this online and thought It give it a shot. Green onions in a jar! The only problem is getting organic fertilizer to disperse in the water well enough. I'll just toss a little compost in there and stir, see if that will do. I'm getting spring fever again... I might have to start up a basil plant soon!
Hopeful ly I can keep this little avocado tree living long enough so Sean can take care of it when he's old enough. We bought the avocado right before he was born, so they're about the same age! The leaf bud just opened up a few days ago, and I planted it in soil 5 days ago, after the roots started growing fine roots from the main tap root.
You thought you could get away with it didn't you... reading one of my blogs and NOT seeing a food picture! I made these bad boys last night, cheesy corn-dog muffins. Why didn't I think of these before, they were so good!
Just follow the directions on the back of the corn meal container, add 6 diced hotdogs and a handful of cheddar cheese, makes 12!

Welcome back old friend. I thought we lost you. Take those onions out of the water when there is good root growth and put them in soil in a container inside in a sunny spot. I grew an avocado tree from seed one year. I started it in side during the winter then moved it out side and grew it all summer.

@bsmitch: It's been a while since I've been able to post about plants, otherwise its been food and Sean! These are just a few scrap pieces of onion leftover from work, I'm not too worried about growing them for months, when these die off, I can always get more.
@witt: I can't believe I had never thought of it either!

My DNL put the onions like you have inside a jar and they did grow. Then in the spring I planted some outdoors and they grew and died off and came back the next season!! coolness I'll try the hotdog muffins sometime.
