how to get 'free' fresh greens & other veggies
i just wanted to say a word about how cool it is to throw stuff in your compost pile and find stuff growing there later. i have a huge potato plant that sprouted up out of nowhere within a few days... and there's also some fresh new turnip greens sprouting from some old turnips that were no longer good enough to eat. also when you chop onions (for those who don't know already), instead of throwing away the end part (where the "root" is..) bury it in your pile and watch some new ones come up.
i also noticed some purple cabbage growing out of some cabbage ends that got discarded,, it remains to be seen how big they'll get.
also, supposedly, you can plant lemongrass you buy from the store & you'll get a whole new plant.
there are so many things you can plant & have more of, instead of just throwing them in the trash... what a waste!!
anyone else have some good ideas about kitchen cast-offs that can be recycled into new plants.....?
