Well, you don’t require seeds to have a garden as there are a number of fruits and veggies you can actually regrow from scraps and have an abundant food supply in an SHTF event.
Let’s toss around top 10 vegetables you can regrow from kitchen scraps:
If some leaves or head of lettuce is left out, just place it in a water basin and put it in sun. You’ll soon see roots coming out of it. Now take out the small lettuce plant and plant it into soil. To cultivate, just cut its leaves nearly 2 inches long & let it grow again.
You can use the residual base to regrow the plant of celery. Start by fixing its base in water till the time you see roots shooting, and then transfer it to soil.
Put it in sufficient sunlight for it to grow into a large plant and then relish some freshly grown celery.
Take individual cloves of garlic and grow them separately. After few days you’ll witness a fully formed garlic head. If you see any kind of flowering, just remove the “scape” stalk, and let the plant grow till its stalk begins drooping.
Now, it’s time to cultivate and dry your freshly grown garlic.
Take a little piece of organic ginger and soak it into water till the bud starts to flourish, then plant the bud and half of the root into soil so that other half remains above potting soil.
Soon, roots will start forming under ginger root, and it will start growing.
Take about half or quarter inch of this survival vegetable and place it into water till roots start coming out, then transplant it and cover it with good amount of potting soil.
Just cut off the onion greens if you want green onions!
For growing potatoes in your home, just pick a potato that’s already sprouting or you can also go for an organic option. Just remove the potato eye making sure some part of it remains on the potato, bury it into the soil and water daily.
Soon, you’ll witness a potato plant flourishing.
Carrot can be easily regrown from its top. Start with planting its top in soil and water it to keep it a bit damp & warm. Carrot’s top will soon root and finally form new roots beneath the soil.
Start off by cleaning and drying your seeds and then planting them in a warm, rich soil. Please note that pumpkins don’t flourish well in cold temperatures, so never plant them outdoors until you are sure that it won’t frost for long.
Just take a small cup of water and place an avocado seed to see it germinate. Once you see sprouts forming, just transplant the seed into soil.
10. Lemons & Oranges
Take some lemon or orange seeds and place them directly into soil. Water regularly so that they don’t dry out before they even germinate. Let the plant flourish and then transfer as required until it starts producing fruit.
