Growing Your Groceries
I have found many posts on Pinterest about how to grow your groceries. So far we have tried green onions, romaine and leafy lettuce, white onions, red onions, and celery. We have harvested both green onions and lettuce already! It is so easy and wonderful to eat "free" fresh grown food - in the middle of winter!
This is the site that helped out the most in my experiments.
We started a collection of glasses of water full of romaine, green onion, or celery.
After a few weeks we harvested our first batch of lettuce leaves! Now we've replanted both the lettuce and celery in their own containers. We'll see how long they last. Even if they die out I'm still happy with a few free salads.
