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. We just use kitchen scissors to cut what we need for meals. I periodically empty out the water, rinse the roots off and give them fresh water.
I love Cilantro and this is the way I keep it fresh... Cut an 1/8 inch off the stems, place in a mason jar with water covering at least an inch of the bottom stems; cover loosely with a plastic veggie bag or Ziploc and keep refrigerated. Will stay fresh for weeks. MUST do this!!!
Freezing, Drying, and Storing Herbs 101 – HOMEGROWN I love gathering, drying and using my own herbs while cooking. :Presented well, your home grown herbs can be an artform or decoration. Can't you see this in your kitchen?
This is the coolest gardening site EVER! On the Gardener's Supply Company website you can design your own garden beds by clicking and dragging the plants you want, where you want them. Then you can print your planting map WITH very detailed planting directions. This is just what I have been looking for! Hurray!!!:)
