My Husband:  What the hell is that????
My Daughter:  I'm not even going to ask!!!!

With our world here busting open in all shades of green and soon the shades of blossoms everywhere, why would I choose to try and grow something from garbage?
Pintrest!!  I read it a while ago and since I happened to have some "garbage on hand" I thought, what the heck, I'll give it a go.   Look at those sprouts from the celery, this is only a few days btw, as well as the green onions, the romaine, I just popped it into the water 2 days ago and already the center is starting to grow.  Amazing I think.  My husband said, nice . . . so I really didn't have to build those raised garden beds, I could have just saved a few yogurt contains for you!!!
Not really, I will take these now and plant them into the garden, I just thought it was interesting and wanted to see how quickly they grew.  Seriously, next fall and winter I will certainly throw my "garbage" into a couple containers and keep a supply going, the celery even looks pretty!!
There are other things you can grow from your kitchen "garbage" , I am going to try the garlic asap
And, it's interesting for the granddaughter to see (that's another excuse to try these things!).
Well, must go and tend to the "real garden" outside.  The rain has finally stopped and everything is beautiful!
Have fun in the dirt!
