Various plants (in no particular order) that you can regrow from the food you already have! Woot! Way to reuse and recycle! I constantly have green onions and celery growing. (And potatoes/sweet potatoes but that just because they decided to do that in my pantry) Do you guys regrow any of your food?

I haven’t bought green onions in months because of this and I use green onions in like 70% of the things I cook.
I started some mango trees from seed that I got out of the pit. From what I gather on the Internet, if I lived in a frost-free climate, all I’d have to do would be plant those trees and have mangoes forever. But as it stands, we’ll have to see how overwintering them works out. If I keep them in planters I can bring them in on nights (and days) it is supposed to freeze. But will they get enough sun? And being in pots, they would be smaller.
I do want to grow some apples, though. And that romaine looks interesting.
Reblogging because I think C-Mar would be very interested in this.
You better live somewhere tropical or have a 20 foot tall ceiling if you want an alvocado tree
(also they are THIRSTY sumbitches)
