Slimy spring onions.

Hi, I have recently tried growing my own spring onions.  Chopped off the rooted ends of shop bought ones. Planted them in general compost and popped on a shelf in the kitchen watered regularly.  They grew really well. Once at a decent size I chopped off leaving a couple of inches at the bulb to continue to grow.  When chopping them to use they felt a little slimy rather than crisp leaving a slimy residue. They looked fine. Could anyone offer me advice as to what this was. (First time ever growing any vegetable) thanks in advance.

    Generally, you should try growing spring onions from seed. Sprinkle thinly in a row of soil outside. Prepare the soil well and add a general purpose fertiliser.  Thin to an inch apart.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Thank you @fidgetbones. I'll give that a go.
