Has anyone tried this? Put a celery core or a Romaine lettuce core

in water to let it regrow?

I'm not sure if this is really gardening, but I've tried it and here are the results:



That was *3* Days after I put it in water. Sitting next to it is a romaine lettuce heart.

Edit: Oh hell, wrong photo. Will post another.

3. You can do it with onions, too.

replant the stems of green onions or stem end of cooking onions.
You get more green onions.
I keep a porch planter box full, snip the greens when I want garnish.
Leave them long enough and they go to seed.

Also carrot tops, if you want seed.

6. I'm trying it atm with regular onions.

I got a lot of green tops, but then they started getting sort of 'wilty'. I'm thinking maybe it's time to transplant them from the planter out into the garden.

7. I THINK the thing about onions is

They grow into "real" onions either from seeds or from little bulbs which you have to buy.
The ones I grow from the end of an onion just produce greens, which is fine for me, cause I use a lot of onion greens.
I don't think the cuttings have enough nourishment to make a new bulb.
Again, that is just off the top of head.
Before coffee even....

8. I actually used the inner cores.

Cut off the outer layers to use in cooking, then let the cores attached to the roots to plant. Figured those were close enough to the little bulbs to give it a shot. Find out soon enough when I dig em up to transplant.

5. I tried it with celery. Grew fine in the jar, but didn't survive after planting

out in the garden.

9. I'm going to have to try this. My husband has a hydroponic garden

set up in our basement. We've been growing our own lettuce, spinach, swiss chard and arugula all winter. Enough to keep a family of 4 supplied w/ greens daily.
