If you are into organic veggies, it will make a whole lot of sense if you are able to grow them at home. This is much better than buying the genetically modified vegetables found in most grocery stores today.
Growing your own veggies at home requires time and patience though, but the benefits, in the end, make it worthwhile.
Here are eight of your favorite vegetables that you can grow at home.
1. Romaine Lettuce
2. Bok Choy
After you put the root end of this veggie in a bowl of water and place it in a well lit room for about two weeks you will notice new roots. Plant it afterwards into a pot full of soil.
You can place your carrot tops in a dish of water and put it in a well lit room. You will soon see your new carrot sprouting.
Slice the stem length of the basil about 3-4 inches and put it into the water. To avoid a slimy basil plant, make sure to change the water frequently. Place it in a well lit room. The roots will start to appear soon. When they reach about 2 inches in length, you can transplant your basil into a pot with soil.
Just like your basil plant, place the cilantro stem in water then transplant it to a pot after the roots appear and in a couple of months you will have your new cilantro plant.
Put the celery bottom in a low bowl and place it in the sun. Very soon you will notice new leaves sprouting, after about three days you can transplant the celery into a pot of soil.
If you notice new sprouts from your garlic clove place the clove in a pot with some water in it. You can later transfer the sprouted clove in a pot of soil.
You can grow new scallions with older roots. Just put an inch long scallion root in a bowl of water and place it in a well lit room. In no time you will have fresh scallion sprouts.
