Reject “stump” garden

Celery, onion, and garlic in my "stump" garden

On Pinterest, I’ve seen a number of postings lately in which people suggest growing new plants from the root stumps of the veggies they purchase at the grocery store. I’ve never thought about doing this, but it seems like such an obvious, and great, idea. As such, I decided to take one of my self-watering containers in the greenhouse to start a stump garden with unused veggie ends (the root zone area). I’ll share updated pics in a few weeks. Hopefully, I’ll have some good growth on my reject stumps.

Speaking of Pinterest, it’s a great site for gardening, DIY, and homesteading enthusiasts. I often find interesting new ideas on the site and have even posted ideas there myself. You can easily follow me on Pinterest to keep up with my pins.

    Please be careful with this as some veggies from the grocery store are treated and/or contain diseases. To be a little safer organic vegetables are the best ones to try.
