Recycle Fruits And Vegetables – How To Grow A New Plant From The Remains Of Fruits And Vegetables

  1. Leeks

Rather than throwing away the root of the leek, it can also be recycled.

Put it in a bowl with a little water and leave it in a sunny place.

Change the water every 5 – 6 days.

When the green part of the plant grows, you can cut it off and use it.

Leave the root in water, because the plant will continue to grow, and this way you’ll always have fresh and tasty leeks.

  1. Potato

Potatoes can also be quite easy to grow from their bark.

Choose a tuber that has a sufficient number of “eyes” – these are the areas that will be used later to develop a call.

Cut the potatoes. Each piece of bark you’re planning to plant must have two “eyes” and the thickness should be at least 1 cm.

Leave the pieces of bark for two days at an airy place to dry, this will prevent decay.

Once you have prepared the dried pieces of bark, plant them in moist earth and water them regularly.

  1. Cabbage

Cabbage can be successfully recycled in the same way as a lettuce.

You can grow it in a container with water or plant the root directly into the soil.

If you plant it in the ground, plant it shallow and keep the ground moist to encourage germination and growth.

  1. Ginger

Ginger is known as a beautiful ornamental plant, which is an additional reason to grow it yourself.

Plant it in a bowl with soil, and it’ll be a wonderful decoration of your terrace or balcony throughout the year.

Cut a piece of ginger tubers and plant them in a container with soil.

Place the container in bright, sunny place (no direct sunlight) and keep earth moist.

Once the plant grows, you can completely remove it,and repeat the process.

If you don’t need a large amount, cut off a piece of the tuber, and put the rest of the plant back into the ground.

The plant will continue to evolve, and you’ll always have a fresh and healthy food within reach.

  1. Pineapple

Pineapple belongs to the group of fruits that can be re-grown from its own scrap parts.

However, this takes time.

If you have the patience to wait about three years to harvest pineapples, try growing them in the following manner.

With the “crown” of the pineapple, remove the leaves and the middle, and put it in a bowl with water and allow it to take root.

After that, plant it in a container with soil and keep it in a warm and bright place.

  1. Avocado

Clean the seeds and the pits from the avocado and put them in a container with water, just enough so to the lower part of the seeds is covered by water.

Change the water once a week, to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi.

Germination will occur after 3 – 4 weeks, after which you’ll need to plant it in the ground. When planting, make sure that the upper part of the pit remains above the ground.

Avocado loves the sun, so plant it in a well sunlit place.

  1. Celery

Once you’ve used the celery, plunge the roots into a container with water.

In a period of ten days, the root will germinate and will be ready for planting in the ground.

Several weeks after planting it, you’ll notice a new head of celery that you can use.

Save the root and repeat the process.

  1. Peas

Peas are very easy to grow, plus they’re are full of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients.

Wash one cup of organic grain peas and put them in a glass container.

For this amount of peas, add three cups of water and let them sit for several hours so the seeds “awaken”.

Then, drain the water, and close the jar of peas close with a gauze and secure it with a rubber band.

Wash the peas every day, but be sure to strain the water.

After 4-5 days of sprouts will be ready for “harvesting” and consumption.

Aside from peas, you can grow broccoli, carrots, onions, spinach, cabbage, and radishes this way.

  1. Herbs

Herbs such as basil and mint are also very easy to grow.

Just cut off a piece of the stem and put it into the water in order to develop roots.

After that, plant them in the ground, and water them regularly.

Surely you’ll agree – there’s nothing tastier than homemade, freshly picked herbs.
