Regrow vegetables from kitchen scraps on a sunny windowsill

Interested in reducing food waste and saving money on produce? You might consider regrowing vegetables from kitchen scraps. Take celery for example. You can cut 3 inches off the bottom of a head of celery and then slice a sliver off the very bottom of the 3-inch segment. Place it right-side up in a shallow container and pour in 2 inches of water. New growth will sprout from the center in just a few days. Similar methods will work for beets, scallions, leeks and romaine lettuce. These methods aren’t likely to produce plants that will grow well in your garden. But they’re fun on a sunny windowsill and are likely to yield a side dish or two.
