Scrap Gardens

Did you know that you can regrow many vegetables, just using the scraps you would normally throw away?

I had decided that one of my new year’s goals was to create a garden this year. With all the uncertainty lately (not expecting to go to Home Depot or the local gardening centers soon), and the fact that the weather has been warming up and I would like to start gardening, I was reading up on regrowing vegetables from scraps.

The process for regrowing vegetables seems pretty easy- just saving the ends of veggies I was already eating, and place them in a bit of water.

I am starting with Romaine lettuce, but am planning on regrowing other veggies too (as I eat them).
