Many things in life may or may not last for a long time. Good thing, as far as some fruits and veggies go, with a little effort, you can go a long way to getting an unlimited supply of produce in your very own home.
Not only that, but you can also gain many other benefits in growing them yourself.
It is great to recycle
When you regrow the kitchen scraps you get from fruits and veggies, you do Mother Nature a great favor. We all know that recycling has been around for a long time, and it is one of the original ways a household can help in reversing climate change.
A little effort goes a long way. If the base of your lettuce can be saved from the trash and regrown, it’s that much less waste in landfills. Imagine if more households saved one of their lettuces from the garbage and started regrowing them.
If you grow your food, or at least some leafy veggies and fruits like tomatoes and apples that you use for snacks or even an ingredient for your dinner, then that’s money in the pocket. Plus the fact that it is very easy to do in the kitchen too. You can use extra cups and bowls lying around in the kitchen to start your project.
You know what you are growing
If you want to eat organic, it is a great idea to grow organic. You can be sure of what you eat since you, yourself, grew it in the comfort of your home.
It is a great hobby
Growing fruits and vegetables may seem like a boring thing to do since the idea is just to wait for plants to grow, but the beauty of growing from food scraps is that you can see the progress every day. You can take a photo and compile them into a collage where you can see the progress. It is an exciting endeavor to wait and witness what you can serve at your table.
They look great in your kitchen
There’s nothing like having an edible display in your kitchen. Why would you bother to get plastic decoration when you can grow edible plants in your kitchen. If you want a natural feel to the decoration you put up, then you would want to regrow your fruits and veggies from food scraps.
There are many benefits to you from having environmentally friendly projects such as growing fruits and veggies. Here’s a useful article guide to regrowing to get you started.
