It's spring and even the veggies in my kitchen know it. I have had potatoes sprout before I can use them up and bags of carrots all fuzzy with roots. This is half a red onion that I forgot in my crisper drawer. Usually, it would just get soft and rotten before I tossed it, but this tenacious onion started growing green shoots.
I love to save my "forgotten" also and I believe I watch/baby these more closely than my regular plants. Maybe it is just another form of loving to see new growth from what would generally be deemed garbage.
Nice photos and keep us posted.
Here is my red onion now. I planted it on March 4th, about 6 weeks ago. It it growing fast, as are the kale and other plants in the bed.
Here are pictures I took on May 22nd. It's even bigger now and I anticipate I will get 2 large red onions at the end. I will post one more set when I harvest it, as soon as it is finished flowering.
