Which is surprising because they are related to onions and me & onions are not friends. I love making a bowl of potato and leek soup on a chilly day and the other week was one such occasion.
After cutting the ends off, I has some bits with roots left and I wondered what would happen if I stuck the roots in some water. Would the leek grow and could I just reuse the roots to grow my own leeks?
So I stuck the ends in some water and set them on the window seal, next to my sweet potato that is sprouting.
After two days this is what I have:
I am excited to say, they are growing. I am out of town and am excited to see how much they have grown when I return! Stay tuned.
