Try these 15 foods you can regrow from scraps, and see if it helps out your food bill costs this year. It can be a lot of fun and even rewarding to grow your own food and these are 15 foods you can regrow from scraps that you might otherwise just throw out, which is even better. So you do not have to spend much money at all to get any of these 15 foods you can regrow from scraps going in your own home and garden. One particular food that many of us regrow is potatoes. These might be one of the easiest of the 15 foods you can regrow from scraps that you could try. The kids might like to get in on this project too and just watch as roots get thrown out and as the foods you are re-growing from scraps begin to sprout, and grow on their own.

Just about all the members of the Allium family are good foods to try and regrow from scraps. The Allium family includes garlic, onions, leeks, chives and similar veggies. They are all very good veggies to eat, and there are many recipes that call for one or all of them. And, the chives can be used to top soups, and salads, for even more diversity in things that you can grow and eat. Mushrooms are a very easy veggie that you can grow from your scraps. They do need a dark and moist environment, of course, in order to grow, but that can usually be set up fairly easily.

Foods you can regrow from scraps can be a very rewarding as well as educational project. Take some of the recommendations on at the site, Wake Up World, which tells you a whole list (far more than just the 15 we might list) of veggies and other things that you and the kids can grow together. It is a fun and rewarding thing to do, and unlike so many ways to pass the time, this one costs next to nothing, and does not require you to get in the family car or go anywhere. Those are great reasons to try out these foods to regrow.

How you regrow veggies can vary quite a bit. Some of the veggies that you might try to regrow have to be organic or they may not sprout. That is because commercial growers deliberately spray the plant to prevent it from sprouting anything. That is often done in order to keep the plant looking fresh and healthy and to encourage buying of the product. Enjoy this project and do include the kids when you plan for it. They will love it too. Enjoy!
