Earlier in the year I bought a Thai Curry fresh spice packet that had fresh garlic and fresh onion in it (amongst other spices). I noticed that the garlic and onion had tiny healthy roots still on them, so I thought I’d put them into a large pot and see what happens. Sure enough, they sprouted and recently I was able to harvest them!
After a good wash and trim, they were used as the base for a bolognaise sauce. My kids Love spaghetti bolognaise, and I’m happy to report, they wolfed this particular one down too 🙂
It looks like spur-of-the-moment/ winging- it/ throw-it-in-and-see-what-happens kind of gardening can sometimes pay off! So several of the bulbs were saved and put back into the container.
