Without doubt, raw vegetables grown at your home can bring a number of benefits more than the bought ones from the grocery.
While it may require considerable time, the benefits you’ll enjoy are numerous. In fact, you need no farm as you can do it indoors, and it will save you a lot of money. You just need to use fresh scraps and provide the plants with sufficient light and water when regrowing them.
Put carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Put the dish in a well-lit room. When the greens grow you can use them in salads, or combined with garlic and vinegar.
You just have to cut the base of the celery bottom and put it in a low bowl and put the bowl in the sun. After 3 days, transfer it into soil. Yes, that’s it!
Use scallion’s roots to re-grow the new ones. Scallion root, an inch long, put it in the water and leave it in a place that is well-lit.
4. Bok Choy
Place a root end from a Bok Choy in water. After 1-2 weeks transplant them to a pot that has soil. A new full head will grow.
Here’s what you need to do – just put basil cuttings, the ones that have stems (3 to 4 inches long), in water and place them in a light area. So, when the roots grow 2 inches, you can transfer them into a pot. Make sure you water them frequently so that you avoid slimy basil plants.
6. Romaine Lettuce
Use the bottom of a lettuce head to grow new romaine lettuce. Put stumps of the romaine lettuce in a ½ inch water.
After a few days, once new leaves and roots appear, transplant the romaine lettuce into soil. The leaves can grow up to twice the size. You can also regrow cabbages in the same way.
Place stems of cilantro in a glass of water. When roots become long enough, transplant them in a pot with soil. Make sure there is enough light. The plants will be fully grown in a few months.
When the new sprouts begin to grow from the garlic clove, place them in a pot with a little water. Later transplant them to a soil. New garlic sprouts have a milder flavor and they are great for salads, pasta and other dishes.
