Over on eHow: Make a Self Sustaining Edible Kitchen Garden
You might already know we are big fans of trying to regrow different kinds of fruits, vegetables and greens from the kitchen scraps otherwise tossed in the trashbin. We've seen great successes with regrowing plants like celery, green onions, sweet potatoes, bok choy, garlic, horseradish root, avocados and even pineapples using little more than water and sun.
Today we're sharing how to create a self-sustaining edible kitchen garden in our latest post for eHow.
We re-sprouted and planted the bases of celery, romaine lettuce and green onions — all grouped together and growing in a Terracotta planter for our kitchen. From here we can snip lettuce leaves, celery stalks and onion tips as needed for salads and cooking, then watch the remaining plants regenerate themselves over and over. It's truly the planter that just keeps on giving!
This was such a simple planting project to make and can be found newly featured with step-by-step instructions for making one of your own right here, on eHow.
