Have you ever learned something that you felt embarrassed that you didn’t know? That’s how I felt after watching Ron Finley’s Master Class.

The food scraps I’ve been throwing away for years could be regrown? What? When I heard this I felt silly and wasteful.

The best part is, it is super easy and you can regrow (aka propagate) so many types of vegetables, fruit trees and flowers. I’m going to focus specifically on onions.

Start by cutting and saving about a half inch from the bottom of your onion.

Place in a container with enough water to cover the base. Eventually, roots will grow.

Once you have a decent set of roots growing. Shove your onion into some decent quality garden dirt.

Keep the soil moist. And…

Eventually your onion will regrow and produce another onion (or two).
