It worked! I had my doubts, but hey, one less bottle in the landfill right?  Simply cut or melt holes in a large bottle fill and plant I put in a cotton wick and water it in the bottom tray.

Anyone know how to get a URL for a personal photo on a phone or tablet?

Hint, Facebook is pretty stingy with their images and discourage people from sharing them on outside sites.  The easiest thing to do is to upload them directly to permies with the "attachments" tab when you are making a post.

This is what I did last year, but with spring onions.
My kids like the YouTube channel "Slivki Show" which is quite popular in Germany, it is a Russian guy (?) I think that has a channel in German and one in Russian, with life hacks, recipes etc.
Here is a link to the video where he shows how to do this with a bottle (starts about midway through the video):


I have been searching for a picture of the sprouted bottle but have not found it (yet).

ETA: The good thing is that you can start this in late winter (if you get the little onions already, that is) and then harvest 2-3 times when there is nothing growing in the garden yet.
