So you probably (hopefully) recycle. You might even compost. Great work. But what if I told you that you could regrow your food simply from saving your scraps? Pretty neat huh. So here we go.. Vegetables You Can Regrow From Scraps.
Next time you buy some garlic, keep a couple of cloves aside and see if you can grow your own. Plant your garlic clove root down in some potting soil, ensuring to keep the soil moist. Trim the shoots as they appear and soon you should have a new garlic bulb.
Next time you buy a bunch of shallots, save the roots and replant them in a small glass. A spare shot glass would be perfect. Cut them an inch from the end, cover the roots in water and put them in the sun. Give them a week, changing the water if it gets too murky, and ta-da! New shallots.
Ginger is a great herb that can be easily grown at home. Next time you have some left over, keep it aside and plant it. Place your piece of ginger with the bump facing up in some potting soil. Ensure to keep the soil moist, and in a week you should see shoots appear from the soil. Harvest. Rinse. And repeat.
Love chilies? Me too. And soon, you can your own endless supply. Just keep the seeds and pop them in some soil. Simple. But why stop there, experiment with different varieties and colours as many have different personalities of their own and a great way to add excitement to a dish. Once these beauties start to fruit, you may quickly have more than you know what to do with. Why not make chili salt, chili oil, or try drying them for cooking?
This staple is possibly the easiest one to regrow. Chop the root end off about a centimeter from the end. Stick them in the garden or a pot but make sure they get plenty of sun. And this can be done over and over and over again, giving you an endless supply of onions.
Even after planting new vegetable the vegetables you can regrow will still leave you with waste, be sure to recycle that waste through your SINGLE or DOUBLE Recyclit WasteChute.
