Have you tried regrowing your vegetable scraps? I saw a few posts about it on pinterest so decided to give it a go. Here is a leek after 5 days growth….
That shoot you see there is as long as my pointer finger! I’m also growing shallots, they got so long in a week that I had to trim them!
The short stems were just the white ends and roots before I ‘planted’ them, the longer stems were a new bunch of shallots I bought so that my jar was full 🙂
