Did You Know...

....that if you plant the base of a stalk of romaine or the roots of green onions after you use them, they will grow back?  I read it on Pinterest a little while ago but was skeptical (you know how everything on the Internet is always true).  On a whim, after finishing a stalk of romaine, I stuck the base in the garden and to my surprise, it is in fact growing back!  The green onions are growing even faster.  A fun experiment to try with your kids this summer.
Front romaine has about 3 weeks growth, the back one, 1 week.

Green Onions: See the middle part sticking out?  That's 2 days new growth!
