Never-Ending Chives

Two years ago my husband told me that when he was little he used to grow his own chives from white onions at the store. Thus began our constant little kitchen buddy, Bob,Bobthehydroponiconion.
The day Bob,Bobthehydropniconion got a new female friend.

The only problem was that it took forever for the chives to grow and the onions ate themselves to provide enough energy to make the chives. Skycloud the Fluffiefriend decided to try something a little different- regrow the chives you buy at the store. You can trim them off and they'll keep right on growing! At first Skycloud placed the chives in water to encourage the roots. After two weeks she added soil to ensure enough energy for the plants.

But how to keep the gnats and other pests out? Take a clear plastic bag and place over the cup so that bugs aren't attracted to it. It also acts as a little greenhouse that the chives love! You will have an endless supply of fresh chives year-round with no runs to the grocery store!
