Find Out How To Grow Endless Onions Quickly And Easily Indoors
Do you want to have a lifetime supply of onions? Well, get yourself ready because we're going to flood our homes with onions! “I’m not really into onions.” Really? Why? “I don’t know. It always makes me cry! And I don't like to cry because I look ugly when I do!” Oh, poor dear one, please don't say you're ugly. And an onion makes you cry when you cut them. That’s its nature. It’s in the order of the universe. So, so you want to know why? “No, I'm not interested. I’d rather---” *hugs* You need to know this so you’ll understand, ok? Good.
Let me tell you a little information about onions first. Onion, also called as bulb onion, is “used as a vegetable and is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Allium.” According to Wikipedia, onions are sometimes regarded as biennial or perennial plant, but it can be an annual plant and can be harvested in its first growing season. Onions have culinary and non-culinary uses. Obviously, onions are used as spices. For non-culinary use, onion’s juice can be used as moth repellant. It can be “rubbed on the skin to prevent insect bites.” It can also help in hair growth and reduces freckling on the face.
So here comes the world’s one and only query about onions: Why do onions make you cry? Here’s an answer I got from the Science Bob website: When you cut an onion, it releases a gas called, ready for this, Propanethiol S-oxide. When mixed with certain enzymes in the onion, it creates a sulfur gas. These gases then get to your eyes and create a mild acid that irritates the eyes. What should you do then? Do not rub it with your hands! You can wear safety goggles to reduce tears every time.
You can grow onions outdoors, but we want to show you a fun way to grow them indoors using a plastic bottle as the planter.
