Ever buy something at the grocery store only to find you already had it in the pantry? I did that with a bag of red onions recently.
I ate them as quickly as I could – onion breath for days – but still, a few started to sprout.
One of the more mature sprouts had started to die, but I decided to plant it as an experiment anyway. To my surprise, the plant actually revived itself. The brown sections that I planned to trim are now lush and green.
Incredible resilience. I was fascinated to watch the resurrection.
Don’t be too quick to write things off.
And for those of you paying attention to the timestamp, it is in fact winter,
which means that yes, there is a huge pot in my kitchen with an onion growing in it…
