Onions from waste

I read somewhere that the Carrot fly is deterred by the smell of Onions. I tried for the first time a method of growing onions . Cut the bottom off an onion leaving about the thickness of your little finger left (on the onion not your hand !) and plant it. Whoa and behold they are growing - amazing sight.
I tried the method  with the top of a Carrot and that is growing too. Feeling chuffed

await to see photos on the outcome plus keep us up to date please
