Growing produce from scraps

Like many others sheltering-in-place at home, we’re eating up all of our fresh produce and starting to run low. Our solution was to grow more! We had three green onions left and they were looking like they’d seen better days. I trimmed them and stuck them in a glass of water in the windowsill a…
