Sustainable Veggies

My daughter wanted requested I put celery in this years garden. In doing a little looking I found that you can actually grow a host of foods from your grocery scraps, celery included. I had some partially wilted celery in the fridge, i.e. too floppy to eat, so I gave it a try. It's exceedingly simple, just take the last couple inches of the stalk and put it in water. Fresh stalks started growing about a week after "planting". These can be moved to soil after growing to a couple inches in length. Other plant you can do this to include:
  • lettuce and cabbage
  • onions
  • potatoes
  • ginger
  • pineapple
I'm sure there are a number of other plants too. Unfortunately, this doesn't work for prime rib.
