8 Vegetables That You Buy Once And Regrow Forever

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

 Use the bottom end of your lettuce to grow a fresh one. All you need to do is to put the stem in a bowl with about 1/2 inch of water. In just a couple of days you will see roots emerging. Once roots have appeared you can transfer your lettuce into soil.

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.

3. Carrots

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.

4. Basil

Cut the stem of the basil about 3-4 inches in length and put it into 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.

5. Cilantro

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.

6. Celery

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.

7. Garlic

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.

8. Scallions

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.

This is much better than buying the genetically modified vegetables found in most grocery stores today.
