Fall update on my vegetable scrap garden...
October 7, 2020
Those who know me, know that I don't like to let anything to go to waste. Last spring I started an experiment to find the best way to get vegetables to regrow from the scraps that I would usually just throw away. It has been such a fun experiment! I thought that I would give you a fall update before the first frost arrives. My vegetable scrap garden is doing great!
Last spring, I first started regrowing green onions on my windowsill by placing them in a glass with some water. It is amazing how quickly the greens grew back! When the weather got warmer, I moved my veggie scrap garden outdoors. I planted those green onion ends into a pot on my patio and the greens grew back even faster!
I loved that method so I planted the end piece from a head of lettuce and it grew great as well! But I learned that my puppy loves lettuce too. Wilson kept on eating my lettuce!
I also planted the end piece of celery into a pot filled with soil and loved watching it sprout back to life! That celery stalk regrew and is now over 16 inches tall. I love giving new life to things that you would normally just throw away. And who doesn't love free food?
Oh Wilson! Does this sweet puppy face look like a lettuce lover to you?
This has been such a fun experiment for me! I love my vegetable scrap garden. As the days and nights get colder, I will have to go back to the windowsill garden.
