    I made a salad . i used green onions and kept the ends of them and put them in water to re-root them . i will plant them in soil in a few days and grow more green onion from those roots.
    I am going to try to re-root and regrow some more vegetables like romaine lettuce

      I'm trying this out too! I don't know if I have given them enough light to regrow. I'm also saving veggie scraps (onion skins, carrot peels) in my freezer to make broth once I have collected enough.
