Grow Your Own Food

Bella Breakdown

Although vegetables aren’t the most expensive food on the market, buying good veggies can take up a large amount of time. If you’re truly want to make vegetables a large part of your diet, then you need to go to the grocery store once or twice a week in order to keep it fresh.

What most people don’t know is that there are many leafy, edible greens that can actually be grown in house. All you need to do is harvest the seed from a plant you buy at the store. Check out these veggies you can grow (and then eat!) right in the comfort of your own home.

Lettuce

First, cut off the leaves while making sure to keep the stem core together. Then, cut around the actual core, leaving it exposed above the rest of the base. Put the base in a small dish of water and harvest after 10-12 days.

Celery

Chop off the stems of the bundle of celery. Put the base in a shallow bowl of water, and then move it into soil after 12 days.

Basil

Cut a few basil stems a few inches from the base of the leaf and place the stems in a cup of water. Be sure to remove any leaves that aren’t at the top of the stem. Plant the basil in soil after fifteen days.

Green Onions
Chop off two inches of the stem of the green onion. Put the stems in a glass of water with a rubber band around all of them. Leave an inch of the top exposed. Eat after 7 days.

Onions
Cut roots (the leafy part) from the bottom of the onion. Add soil the onion roots to a planter, with the roots face down. Cover the roots with one inch of soil and harvest the onions after 90 days.

Avocado
Remove the seed from the avocado, wash it and dry it. Insert 3 toothpicks into the seed so that it can be placed at the top of a class of water with only the bottom touching the water. Put the avocado seed and glass in a bright light and continue to water it.
