shout out to my fellow natives who feel bitter about the 4th of july and aren’t allowed to speak up about it. shout out to any non-straight/trans/etc person whose rights aren’t recognized and feels silenced by pro-american propaganda. shout out to anyone who knows that america isn’t a free country, that independence is limited, and that the only men created equal are the ones who meet the criteria.

telling a native american to leave america if they don’t like it here is like breaking into a stranger’s home, stealing their belongings and killing their family and then telling them if they don’t like it they can just move out

How to grow green onions from scraps!

Green onions are delicious, nutritious, and extremely easy to grow - (inside or outside)

1. Acquire some organic green onions and give them a rinse

2. Cut off the end with the root (about 2 cm from the end)

3. Stand the lil guy up in shallow water & let sit for 3-5 days. They need an ample amount of sunlight but will also grow just fine with indirect.

4. After the 3-5 days, green shoots should start to appear. Once the green shoot looks strong enough, it can be transplanted into dirt (a 2cm shoot is ready)

5. Eventually, the green onions will shoot up and flourish. When they are about the thickness of a pencil, they can be harvested. Or when they start to brown on the edges, it’s time to harvest. Then you can pluck the green onion out, eat it, and begin the process again!

Happy growing :}
