The next time you have green onions, don't throw away the white ends. Simply submerge them in a glass of water and place them in a sunny window. Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately and can be harvested almost indefinitely. Just use kitchen scissors to cut what you need for meals. Periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them fresh water.
How to Grow an Avocado Tree from an Avocado Pit. We LOVE guacamole! I serve it quite often and have tried growing a tree for a pit many times over the years with varying success. I wanted to share that leaving an avacodo pit in your prepared guacamole will keep the dip from discoloring. It stays nice and green right to the bottom of the bowl.
DIY Drip Irrigation System, Made from Plastic Bottles- The 'system' is super simple. All we have to do is grab some 2-liter plastic bottles, punch 2 holes into the sides and 2 into the bottom, and plant said bottles next to our plants. Fill them with water and our plants will get that slow watering they prefer. For more information about the project, visit Fine Craft Guild.
