8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.
You can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room.
When garlic begins to sprout, you can put them in a glass with a little water and grow garlic sprouts. The sprouts have a mild flavor than garlic and can be added to salads, pasta and other dishes.
Bok choy can be regrown by placing the root end in water in a well-lit area. In 1-2 weeks , you can transplant it to a pot with soil and grow a full new head.
Put carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit room or a window sill. You’ll have carrot tops to use in salads.
Put clippings from basil with 3 to 4-inch stems in a glass of water and place it in direct sunlight. When the roots are about 2 inches long, plant them in pots to and in time it will grow a full basil plant.
Cut off the base of the celery and place it in a saucer or shallow bowl of warm water in the sun. Leaves will begin to thicken and grow in the middle of the base, then transfer the celery to soil.
Put romaine lettuce stumps in a 1/2 inch of water. Re-water to keep water level at 1/2 inch. After a few days, roots and new leaves will appear and you can transplant it into soil.
The stems of cilantro will grown when placed in a glass of water. Once the roots are long enough, plant them in a pot in a well-lit room. You will have a full plant in a few months.
great info… pass it on!
I need this right now. This is great info!
Kittens and mango juice

Vegan note: Gardening
Just got back from my sister’s place yesterday. I spent a lot of time helping her with her organic garden.
She now currently has the following:
Cucumber, zucchini, cantaloupe, lemon cucumber*, blackberry*, raspberry*, roma tomato, cherry tomato, 1-2 other tomato varieties, ground cherry, carrots*, sugar snap pea, onion*, black peanuts, goji berry, wheat grass*, florence fennel*, strawberry corn*, white corn*.
That’s just what I can recall, so over 20 different varieties of fruits and veggies, all heirloom, organic, non-GMO, some grown from seeds by her and I*, some purchased already growing. Organic gardening is so much fun. :)
Picked some fruits and veggies from the garden! I don’t know what to do with all of these grapes…
share them with meeeeee
Wow I wish. Grapes are the bestttt. I can’t even imagine homegrown.
All natural food is so beautiful, I almost don’t want to eat it, but that doesn’t last long. <3
July 4th, 2014: Backstage with fans at the artRAVE
Her and her adorable fans. <3
I hate it when you are having a bad day and everyone takes it personally, like no i hate myself, not you. get the fuck over yourself.
wow i’m actually so glad this post has been made
My last 2 weeks in a nut shell.
So… L’Oreal fired a female model because she hunts animals.
L’Oreal, a company that tests toxic chemicals on animals by pouring them in their eyes and down their throats, and vivisects them, fired a female model because she also kills animals… in a far, FAR more instant and painless way.
L’Oreal, who isn’t out to hire only vegans. or make sure than no one who works within the company is a hunter, fired a female model for being a hunter…
L’Oreal, in short, fired her for being a woman, an accomplished one at a young age, no less. While anyone who kills an animal is a coward, risking your life tracking and killing a lion with a gun in a field is far less cowardly than strapping a tiny rabbit to a table with screws in it’s skull to burn it’s eyes out with bleach for days on end until it dies.
orange is the new black also spoiled me like??? a DIVERSE FEMALE CAST????? why would i want to watch anything starring dudes when something like THIS is possible
I really need to watch this show already, I just never watch TV series’.
Moving: Step 2
… drove all my belongings from Minneapolis to my sister’s house in Ohio yesterday, or rather from 10:30am yesterday until 3am today… with only making 2 stops, and just to get gas, no breaks, no resting, no stretching… The last 3+ hours were tense as hell. It was dark out and even while my vision is so good that it passes standards required for pilots, I was hyper focused on the road and blasting the cold air on myself to stay conscious enough, while huge semi-trucks blew by me on narrowed construction roads for hours, in one case, on a bridge with minimal guardrails. I had to honk at a deer that almost got in front of my full cargo van and thankfully it ran back into the woods and didn’t slam into my car upon being startled. I was so tense for the past few hours that I have callouses on my palms from how tight I was holding the steering wheel.
I hate the few times I actually feel fear, it’s not pleasant.
Upon getting home I went to sleep for 2 hours before having to unload the cargo van, and then slept another 2 hours before having to return the van, then I slept (from 8:30am) until noon, for the first time in many years.
When I finally woke up I just drew a bubble bath and ate vegan cheese puffs and ran my feet under the hot water.
All is good now and I got to spend the day gardening. Now it’s beer o’clock…
