I laughed at this because of the amusing last line in your post, but in fact that rubber band is there to support a couple of toothpicks that are suspending the green onions off the bottom of the jar. Are you saying it won't hurt them to rest on the bottom?

I just  take off the rubber bands

 

I do look for GO's that have roots , the more roots the better

 

I think.

 

then I rinse them in cold water

 

and put them loose in a clean 1 qt container

 

if its hot and too sunny , Ive learned to let them sit in their

 

New Home for a day or so

 

I have noted that the outer stalks of the GO I bring home

 

do not do well.

 

so I cut them off and use then that day

 

talk about being obsessive !

 

but if I went to the trouble

 

now days 

 

I try

to treat what I get w a little respect.

I think they are fine w/o a bra. The roots come out the sides not the bottom as I understand it.

all I know is this :

 

I pick the cutters of GO's

 

w more roots on them

 

rather than less.

 

working for me

 

now in the winter in N.E. :

 

dicy it is.

 

of course

 

if you go to a Chi-Chi

 

or Chee-Chee store these days

 

they may cut the roots off.

Maybe you @Smithy and @rotuts ought to think about growing other green weeds hydroponically. You know, the ones worth much more $$ - and legal to do so in Mass!

@weinoo 

 

your idea is an interesting one.

 

the problem these days is you have to get cuttings. 

 

that's the difficult part.    the cuttings root easily , etc.

 

and from that point on the rest is also easy.

 

Those days one used seed.

 

that's all I can say.

There's really no problem, @rotuts. Even a neophyte such as myself could help you - as long as I can wet my beak.

Many small growers still grow from seed. There are many online retailers that will ship all over. But I don't really know anything about these things...

Hells bells - major trade magazines like Grower Talks talk about it constantly ;)

my GO's  have always rested on the bottom.

 

I look for bunches that have the most roots still attached

 

but don't look too old and tired.

@rotuts - A cutting will absolutely make your life (and your path to $$$ & stardom - as @weinoo eluded to) much easier and shorter.  A guaranteed female from a known breeder will shave nearly a month off your process.

 

Seeds are also fun, as you can hunt for various phenotype's within one particular strain.

 

Now you are headed down a steep rabbit hole....so make sure your harness is on tight!

 

Oh, and if you move to Canada, it is now part of your rights as a Canadian Citizen to grow up to 4 plants. 

 

:cool:

A couple of super fresh roast  (roasted 2 days ago) from George Howell for Miss Silvia.

Duke's for Miss Significant Eater and me.

An old favorite Chinese cookbook already lives here..I'm wondering if I should aggravate myself attempting wontons.

Ventured out to Kroger this afternoon, first stop inside the store in maybe six weeks. I was cheered to see an improvement in mask-wearing percentage; well over half the customers -- and there were a bajillion of them, apparently preparing for a big holiday weekend -- were masked. Meat coolers appeared to be well-stocked; in fact, the only gaps on the shelves were in toilet paper (there was some available, but big gaps on the shelves), and where the disinfectant wipes used to live. I picked up some ground beef, as my farm guy is out, and some ground chicken. 

 

Glad I stocked up on beef and pork from the farm guy a week or so back, because he is presently out of both. Said he'd taken a couple of calves and a pig to the processor last month, and should have meat ready in a couple of weeks. He has plenty of chicken, he says. I'm glad he, at least, is doing very well, business-wise, during the pandemic. I signed up for my quarter-steer mid-June, and I can't get it until December; it's a shortage of slaughterhouse availability.

 

Am getting tomatoes out of the garden now; some issues with blossom-end rot, so I need to get some calcium out quickly. Looks like I will have a bumper crop of Romas, which is good, as I'll make lots of sauce with them. And I have little baby green beans on my Kentucky Wonders. Sadly, the yellow squash and zucchini have really slowed down; not sure if it's a fertilizer issue, a water issue, or what. I may have crowded that bed too much.

Shoprite had no limes.*

 

 

*this is not strictly true, as I found a couple bags of pricy little limes in the organic section.  I bought one.
