A Death in the House...

When one goes away from home for more than a day or two, things can happen.  In this case, there was a death in the house.

Some years ago I learned that after using green onions I could put the root end into a cup of water.  Within a very little while new shoots would appear.  I love having these fresh greens on my shelf to go in scrambled eggs, salads, sandwich fillings, soups, you name it, I like them. 

On this recent trip away from home I left two cups of scallions growing.  When I arrived home, this is what I found:

Of course, this could have been avoided if I had "filled" the cups with water before leaving....It is no huge loss.  I can handle this kind of death in the house.

New scallions are easy to find, and in the meantime I have some lovely chives growing in the garden, and five more garlic scapes I can use.
