  Nobody eats the roots of green onions or leeks, a sprouting bulb of garlic and other vegetable discards. They end up as landfill.

But you can regrow some vegetable scraps in water, as long as you have a little sunlight.

We saw this tip on Hidden Valley’s Facebook page and then did further research, ending up on Lifehacker.com. A reader’s comments on that site advises:

After the new plants have started, you can keep growing them in water or else transfer them to soil so they’ll pick up nutrients and become more flavorful.

  • Fennel
  • Garlic
  • Leeks
  • Romaine
  • Scallions (Green Onions)
  •  
    Try it both ways—water and soil—and see what works for you. Make it your “indoor farming” project for fall.

    Here’s how to do it from Lifehacker.com.
