How many of you throw away the peels and stems of veggies you use to make dishes/consume? Kitchen scraps is the maximum waste a house creates but it isn’t a problem for the environment since it is mostly biodegradable. It is possible to regrow many of the veggies from there scraps; not only will this save money but will also be a nice addition to your home garden. Besides, you get fresh supply of veggies! Here is a list of veggies you can re-grow from the kitchen scraps:
Carrot is the widely used vegetable in the kitchen and I am sure many simply throw away the heads after eating the flesh! The Carrot heads are the growth sources and even of you simply bury a whole carrot, it will sprout from the head. You can simply cut off the head (the wider area with an eye) and bury it in the soil or simply place it in water filled dish before burying in soil. It will sprout in few days.
Basil is the easiest one to grow. Nothing beats having your very own fresh herb in the pot that you can simply have from your home garden. Basil regrows from the stem s you don’t even need to cut off any specific part; simply tear away a stem from the bunch or the left over and plant it in a soil-filled pot. Water it regularly and see the growth quickly. Benefits, uses and remedies using Basil for Skin and Hair
Potatoes re-grow from their peels so what you can do is, bury leftover potato peels in the soil and water it. You can also bury potato pieces that still have the skin intact. The peels contain eyes that sprout.
Garlic regrows from the root, the head area that has hair/root. Just place the garlic root down into soil. Garlic likes warmth with plenty of direct sunlight and will easily root itself and produce new shoots. GARLIC HOME REMEDIES

Lettuce regrows from the base or the bottom. You can cut off the base since it is anyways not edible (not usually edible) and place it in a dish filled with water. Once it starts sprouting you may shift it into soil.
- BEAN SPROUTS
Bean sprouts are the easiest ones to grow. If you have any leftover beans or just the sprouts, place it in water for a day or two or until they sprout and then shift it into soil.
Avocado regrows from the seed. Simply wash the seed and use toothpicks to suspend it over water in a bowl or jar. The water should come up enough to cover the bottom inch of the seed. After few weeks you will see rots and tiny stem growing; that is when you can plant it in soil.
Ginger itself is a root, so any part of it when you sow grows into a plant. You may suspend it in water for the initial days to see it sprouting and then put it in soil if you want.
