There’s nothing like fresh fruits and vegetables grown in your garden. Not only do they taste better, but they’re also safer and healthier for you and your family since they are grown without the use of harmful pesticides or other nasty chemicals. What’s more, growing your own food helps save a lot of money and reduces your carbon footprint by cutting down on food miles.

Did you know that many kitchen scraps can be used to regrow fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices? It is an easy and fun way to recycle. If you have kids, don’t forget to involve them too.

1. Green Onions

Re-growing green onions is as easy as it gets. Place the white root base in a glass with enough water to completely cover the base and place it on a sunny windowsill. You can keep cutting off what you need, and they’ll grow back super fast.

2. Onions

Remove the neck of an old water bottle and cut holes in the side the size of an onion bulb. Next, fill the bottle up with layers of onion sprouts and soil. Water the soil and place on a windowsill.

3. Carrots

You can easily grow carrots from carrot tops. Cut the tops off a carrot and pierce a toothpick in either side of the carrot stump. Balance the toothpicks on the edge of a glass of water, allowing the water just to touch the bottom of the carrot. After a few days, roots and small shoots will appear.

4. Celery

To regrow celery from the base, chop off the celery stalks and rinse the base with water. Then place the base in a bowl of warm water, the base side facing down. Every couple of days, change the water and keep the top of the base moist with a spray bottle. New leaves will emerge from the center.

5. Sweet potatoes
