  1. Did you know you can grow fruit, vegetables, and herbs from the food scraps you normally throw away? Never go to the store again for any of these easy home-grown goodies! Read on to find out what you can start growing in your own home today.

  2. It’s always nice to have some ginger lying around, and having fresh ginger is even better. To grow your own, all you need to do is plant a small piece of another ginger root that you’ve already bought from the store in potting soil (make sure the buds are facing up). In about a week, you should see new shoots and roots. From there, pull them up, use them, and repeat the process.   Spring onions are another very easy vegetable grow right in your kitchen. Once you’ve gone through a bundle of spring onions from the store, place the root into a jar of water (fill the jar a little less than half way), and the onions will begin to regrow in just a few days. Be sure to keep the water clean and replace it as needed.
