Re-Growing Scraps?

I have always wanted to have a garden where I can grow my own things. I do have a wonderful garden but I have no time to plant or maintain vegetables. So when I heard that you can re-grow lettuce and spring onions – two of the things I use weekly if not daily – I got excited!

I did some research (not gonna lie.. Mainly Pinterest research..) and it looked pretty simple!

Did you know you can freeze spring onions? I didn’t, I ended up buying a bunch and them going off before I finished them. I decided to chop what I had, and keep the ends.

Then, I put the ends, upright in a glass with about 2cm of water – just enough to cover the roots. Make sure you keep an eye on the water as the days go by. These suck the water up!

Next, I did the same with the ends of the lettuce. I put just enough water to cover the root of them.


I sat both near sunlight – but not direct sunlight though!
The spring onions started to sprout after a few days. Next thing I knew, they looked like this!


I almost gave up on the lettuce, but on day 5, they looked like this! Yay!

After over a week, they looked like this!
Verdict? It works and is definitely worth a go! Fun for kids too 🙂

What do you re-grow? What are your tips!?
