Magically Growing Foods from Waste

I took the advice from a blog about growing food from scraps and started to grow my own veggies.

The avocado stone has yet to root but this is only after about 10 days. I have been told it might take a month to show a root. I cut off the top of a 2 litre plastic bottle and it sits upside down with the stone resting where the cap is -resting inside a pot.


I am hoping for the Romaine lettuce to flourish and it seems to be doing really well. I am not sure what's going on with the fennel! Just change the water everyday and you see results very quickly.

Oh and I had some of those onion greens with my mashed potatoes tonight. Delicious!

An avocado seed takes up to a month to sprout. I have planted three so far. In good light one is getting to be about 3 feet tall.
