Lifehacker Shares Video of Growing Veggies from Scraps

"Lifehacker always brings great content, this time it helps us start a garden right inside our home with veggie scraps!"

Between long grocery lines, heated competition for delivery slots, and the blessed arrival of springtime weather, you may be tempted to try your hand at growing your own vegetables. You and everyone else: There’s also been a run on seeds. Luckily, many vegetables you take home from the produce section are easy to regrow at home; no seeds are required.

With just scraps from already-used vegetables, some jars of water, and a few pots of soil, you can have your own windowsill garden in no time.

The video above demonstrates how to regrow scallions, onions, potatoes, basil, celery, and lettuce. Remember to change the water in the pots regularly, choose a receptacle large enough to allow the plants to grow, and be patient. Soon, you’ll have your own sustainable farm at home.
