|Regrowing food from what might otherwise end up in the scrap-pile |
can be fun, educational and may feed you many times over!
Carrot Tops (I have read that other root crops would work well for this too, like beets, turnips and rutabagas)
Tomatoes from fresh seeds (Oddly I let several late season non-ripened tomatoes stay right in the garden and each spring I have several ‘volunteers” growing!)
Whole seed spices
Think of the possibilities use whole seeds from your spice or herb bottles, seeds from fresh fruits and veggies. Certainly some of these options allow the items to be started from seed then planted, others allow for the scrap to go right into the ground, and still others can be started in water. It's an endless way to re-used what Mother Nature has gifted us!
