Regrowing Veggies From Scrap

You know I’m all about cooking from scratch, but did you know you can also grow from scrap? Kitchen scraps that is. I’ve experimented a little bit with this using celery and can attest that it works really well. You won’t grow a full plant, but there’s plenty of fresh new food to add to soups, stews or stir fry.

And it doesn’t stop with celery. I was surprised to learn when I opened my email this morning that there are all sorts of other veggies and even some fruit that you can regrow. Here’s an excerpt from the post I received via email this morning from Leanne Ely at

“The next time you toss your kitchen scraps, you might want to ask yourself if you can regrow them first!

That’s right! You can regrow some of your common peels and cores into a whole new plant. And in some cases, you don’t even need a garden. Is your mind blown yet? Good.

Here are 6 common kitchen scraps you can regrow into something else:”
