If you are like me and struggle maintaining that green thumb of yours, having had many plants die young, plant green onions! These things are super hardy and this will be much cheaper than buying them from the grocery store every time a recipe calls for them.
You don’t even have to start with seeds. Like I mentioned last year, buy some green onions from the grocery store. Cut off the green stems and use them in your dinner. Plant the onions, water them as often as you remember to, and watch them grow. The onions in our pot are over a year old, having survived two winters, freezing rain, howling winds, thunderstorms, basically everything.
Presto! Green onions in your back yard :). I can run out back, snip off a few and throw them into whatever recipe I desire. If I need the onion, I can pull one up, wash it off and it’s ready.
These will grow great in a pot or in the ground, but they might overtake other plants if planted too close.
