How to regrow veggies from scraps – ingenious and easy!

A neighbor and I started a veggie garden when COVID-19 shelter-in-place lockdown began.

I’ve been enjoying the plentiful supply of fresh salad greens since.

The video below gives truly ingenious and very easy ways to regrow vegetables from scrap.

I’ve been growing new Romaine lettuce in water fr bottom of a cut Romaine lettuce fr the grocer once I eat it…since beginning of quarantine…in fact, tho’ I don’t get a huge crop fr it, it’s an activity I’ve shared online w/5-yr-old granddaughter via email & face-time, as she has been experimenting w/ it right along w / me, a shared “quarantine experience.” FUN & informative for a Nana & only grandchild who can’t visit in person 🙂

Cabbage you can sorta do that to as well! With the parasite infections going around with bagged lettuce, better to grow your own anyway. Much better for you! 🙂

WOW!! That was REALLY interesting,even for a non-farming gearhead like me. With that said,most of it would require extensive explanation before I could undertake it with any degree of confidence.

FWIW – corn is extremely hybridized , and does not breed true .
Plant a kernel from a corncob , and it’s a total crapshoot as to what will come up .

You are correct and almost all corn is GMO. Also, what you said about corn applies to all mass distributed vegetables. However, seeds of heirloom vegetables can be treated as in the video. What the video shows about propagating through cuttings, roots etc. is worthwhile even for hybridized plants because the results are sort of like clones, while seeds revert to the parent plants.

How informative! I’m going to try some of these methods.

I’ve thought about trying this and putting seeds into pots yet I’d have to set them outside to get any type of real sunlight. But then outside they’d be exposed to the many critters around here and I’m afraid they’d all be eaten. We’ve got birds, squirrels, raccoon, possum, armadillo, rabbits – just to name a few.   I have a couple neighbors who have tried to put vegetables outside and they have the problems w/critters. One woman I know has a greenhouse to keep the critters out. She’s been successful with that. But hers is a really strong/sturdy greenhouse… Read more »

Dear DCG—I live in a dry & predatory -ridden So CA area, where I decided at the get-go that—if I had to water something/ pay for it w/arm & leg, I’m, ,by God, going to eat what I’m watering! I grow salad greens & beloved sweet basil & Swiss Chard or Kale or mescalum (mixed greens)…. that I use in every salad– in critter-free hanging porch planters, same w/prolific grape tomatoes….as tho’ they are decorative porch “flowers.” Some years, when I’ve put up as many hanging planters as decorative/pleasing on my front/ back porches, I’ve put more of these produce… Read more »

Thanks for the ideas, Calgirl! I’ll definitely try some of those.

Hi Calgirl!
Only way I can even grow strawberries is in plastic bins on my back deck! 🙂

I have a book somewhere called (I think) “Greywater Oasis”. The only thing is, if you use Toxic Tide detergent or anything with toxic ingredients it won’t work. The ‘greywater’ they’re talking about is from bathtubs, sinks and possibly laundry (Trader Joe’s has non-toxic detergent, even my chemically sensitive hubby doesn’t react to it, a lady I cleaned house for who was allergic to everything and I mean EVERYTHING used seventh generation detergent, so it must be OK too).

A good guard dog can do wonders, that and a good .22.
If you have the money, you can put a double fence around the garden, have the dog be able to run around the second fence, and have the garden inside the first fence.

SO TOTALLY CREATIVE AND SUPER DUPER COOL! Thanks for sharing that Dr. E, I’ll have to try that with the carpathian walnuts, pricing them in catalogs they are so expensive to buy a seedling tree! Dragon fruit, they sell those in Wallyworld, love the one about carnations, I got some white ones from a friend for my Dad’s passing, I’ll have to root those, wonderful! Now if I could only get some decent potting soil, I bought dollar store “soil” and it was killing my seeds that were germinating. Just watch pouring milk over your plants, I poured some diluted… Read more »
