Grow your own vegetables, for free

The weather is cold and there is no hope of growing anything outdoors, for the moment.  The good news is that there are several vegetables you can grow indoors.  I read a blog post about a week ago that outlined a list of vegetables that you can grow indoors, for FREE.

Disclaimer: You do have to buy the vegetables the first time around.

You simply cut off the base and place the freshly cut bottom in water.  These plants will re-root and you can grow your own vegetables.  The vegetables they found this to work on so far include: lettuce, celery, green onions, bok choy, garlic, ginger, basil, potatoes & carrots.  To learn more about their research you can visit, Re-grow your own groceries.

I am trying this with cauliflower.  I figure the base of cauliflower is similar to lettuce.  Stay tuned to see what happens.  Here is a picture about five days in.  The good news is that it is still living and green.  I will give you an update in about a week.

Nerdy…yes, but so fun!

Re-grow cauliflower?
