5 Vegetables You Can Grow Indoors From Scraps

Celery

Before you rip off any stalks simply cut off the base. About an inch or two will do. Then plop it down in a cup of water and watch as the celery regrows. In a matter of days, you’ll notice fresh green growth emerging from the center. Try to change the water every couple of days. When the new growth has established, transfer the growing celery into the garden or a pot of soil to continue its development.

Carrots

The ends of carrots you usually chop off and throw away will grow carrot greens if you put them in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit windowsill and you’ll have carrot tops to use as a garnish or in salads.

Garlic

If you’ve ever forgotten about a bulb of garlic, you know how fast they start producing sprouts. Simply take the cloves that are producing sprouts, plant them, store in direct sunlight, and eventually you’ll have a whole new bulb or garlic.

Scallions

You can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room. In as little as 5 days you can completely regrow a full scallion (or green onion) from the scraps.

Ginger

If you’re looking for an easy plant to grow indoors Ginger is the one for you. Just take you’re a chunk of Ginger from your kitchen scraps and place it into the soil. Watch the new buds, and make sure that are facing up. The plant will enjoy filtered light, rather than direct sunlight. Once the ginger has developed sufficient growth, pull the plant from the soil for use. Don’t forget to cut off a piece to re-plant!
