plants that can be grown from kitchen scraps

[Scallions I have growing in my kitchen]
Since I got such a great response to my "How to Grow a Pineapple" post, I'd figured I'd share more gardening from kitchen scraps with you!

Scallions
These are so easy to re-grow!  Instead of throwing the root ends away, place them in a glass of water. Change the water every few days. In about 10 days you'll have full grow scallions. Cut as needed. They'll grow back many times.

Potatoes
If you keep a potato sitting around a little too long it will eventually sprout "eyes". This is usually the point when people will throw them away. However, if you cut them into 2 inch sections (make sure each section has an eye or it won't grow), let them sit on a windowsill for 48 hours, you plant them and grow a new potato. Tip- Plant your potato with the eye facing up about 4 inches down. 

Garlic
All it takes is 1 clove to re-grow garlic! Plant the garlic with the root end down and let it get plenty of sunshine. The plant will begin to grow shoots. Cut the shoots back and the garlic will produce a big bulb.

Onions
Cut off the bottom of an onion- leave about 2 inches of "meat" on it. Allow it to dry out for a day in a shady area. Place the onion bottom side down in a pot and cover with 1 1/2 inches of soil.
