This is my very first time participating in Daphne's Harvest Monday! Although my harvest isn't quite as bountiful as those of the more experienced and successful gardeners out there, I'm still very proud of my harvest. I'm still amazed that I can actually grow anything edible!
This week, I harvested mostly green onions. The larger ones were the ones I grew from my grocery store leftovers (I bought a bunch of green onions, ate them, saved the last 2 inches of the root ends, and planted them in a pot). The smaller ones were thinnings from the green onions I'm growing from seed this year. Not really knowing what I was doing, I sowed the seeds really close to each other (they all sprouted pretty much touching each other), so I still have a bunch more to thin out. They may be small, but they still smelled and tasted very onion-ey.
Oh, and I also cut some oregano and thyme for Keith to use in the rub for his pork loin roast, which I ended up missing last night because I was in a rush to get to the airport. Here's another picture of the green onions after they were washed.
We chopped up the green onions (both big and small ones) and used them to make some tasty breakfast on Sunday.
Even though I still have a lot of green onions left in the garden, I decided to save the root ends to see if I could grow them again. I cut them much shorter than I did last time, just to experiment and see if they will grow from stubs even shorter than 2 inches. The smaller onions, I cut a little longer, just to give them a bit more of a chance to regrow, if at all.
Here is a picture of one of the short root stubs, back in the pot. I'm really curious to see if they will grow again. If not, I'll go back to replanting 2-inch root ends.
