4. Garlic

This is another super easy spice to grow. Take a clove (or several cloves) and plant it, root end down, in a spot that gets plenty of sunlight. The garlic will make new roots and grow fresh green shoots. Once it is well established, cut the shoots back to about 1/3 their original height. Your garlic will respond by putting all its energy into producing a big, juicy new garlic bulb. As with ginger, you can repeat the process by planting some new cloves from your newly grown garlic.

 

5. Pineapple

You might think that you need to live in Hawaii or some tropical place to re-grow a pineapple, but it’s not true! Cut off the green, leafy part at the top of the pineapple and be sure that there is no fruit on the bottom. It’s usually easier to simply grab those stiff leaves and twist them off. Cut some small, horizontal pieces from the bottom until you see the root buds. Remove a few of the bottom layers of leaves so that you have about a one inch base at the bottom of the stalk.

Plant your pineapple base in a warm, but well drained location. Water it regularly at first, and once your plant begins growing again, cut back to once per week watering sessions. Now this will take a while, but in about 2 years, you will be eating your own fresh pineapples from your garden! Read about amazing pineapple benefits.

 

6. Onions

These are probably the easiest veggies to re-grow. Simply cut off the root end of any onion, leaving about a half an inch of onion above the root. Cover lightly with soil and put in a sunny location. Keep the soil moist but not overly wet. Onions like a sunny, warm location so if you live in a colder environment, keep them in pots so you can move them indoors when you need to. Simply pull your onions out of the soil when they are ready, cut off the roots and replant. You will never, ever need to buy onions ever again.

7. For Your Children

If you have young children, let them grow their own “pet” carrot plants. Now this won’t allow you to grow an edible carrot, but it will grow a new plant. The vegetable itself is the root so you can’t regrow it, but you can grow some green tops which are pretty and fun to grow.

Simply cut the green top off of your carrot, leaving about one inch of carrot below the greens. Stick some toothpicks into the sides of your carrot piece so you can balance it in a glass or a jar. Put enough water in the glass so that the stump is covered. Put your carrot in filtered sunlight and be sure that the water level doesn’t drop low enough that the carrot end dries out. In just a few days you will see new roots and after a week or so, you can transfer your pet carrot into a pot with dirt.

Some veggies re-grow easier than others and some of them take some practice, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t have luck the first time. Also, you should always start with an organic starter plants as many conventional plants are sprayed with chemicals that stop them from reproducing themselves. Happy gardening!
