Alternative onion growing

Here’s a way to have at least one homegrown salad ingredient available all year round.Simply place an onion in the neck of a glass jar that is filled with water to just below where the onion rests. The onion’s roots will grow into the water while the leaves appear above, and you just snip them off whenever you’re making a salad. Use them for as long as they reappear and when the bulb is exhausted just ‘plant’ another one.
