It is dark, cold, and rainy outside today. It is just a gloomy day - one of those curl up by the fire, with a blanket and a good book kind of days. But because I have no fireplace, and am between books, I am instead writing this post while little girl is napping.

I am in the middle of two projects right now, and because I want to show them to you when I am done, I am going to write about three quick things today instead of one big one!
I'm a Gardener
|My very useful plant! After about 1 week of growth!|
I found this idea on Pinterest. I am not really sure that it has to do with mess, but it was a great tip, and I wanted to share it with you!
I tend to a cook a lot of asian dishes. I really like Thai flavours, so many of our dishes end up with an asian flare (I go through a lot of Hoisin sauce!). One of the ingredients that is frequently called for in the recipes I use is green onions. I am not a big onion person, but I like the extra little kick that green onions bring to a dish. And I am lucky that they are pretty cheap, but I was constantly having to run to the grocery store for a $0.99 item. So I started growing my own! This project will take you about 2 minutes, and it will cost you anywhere from $0 and $2.
First, you want to take your green onions and cut them down to the top of the white/light green parts. I forgot to take a picture of this, so bear with me. Once you are done, place them in a mason jar and fill the jar with a reasonable amount of water (make sure the roots are covered, but not the whole thing). In a matter of days you will notice sprouts and you will have reusable green onions. No more running to the grocery store for them again! Just make sure they are left in a place with lots of light! You may also want to switch out your water every once and a while so it doesn't get stale.

I hope you all have a great week!
