Our grandkids are here and they are fascinated with growing things. So I was thinking about things that we could grow from kitchen scraps like mandarine orange trees from mandarine orange seeds. As so often serendipitous things happen, my friend, Naresh, reposted on Facebook a post from the FB Homesteading/Survivalism page on 15 Foods you can Regrow from Scraps!
Wow, not only do I have a lot of different projects for the boys, but I will also learn something and we will benefit from it too. Have you tried any of these or have other suggestions on what can be grown (other than avocados!).
