I love gardening. Well, not actually the work behind the gardening so much – it’s the harvesting that I really look forward to. There is nothing like fresh veggies from your own personal garden! I actually just planted a bunch of things in my vegetable garden, and may have gone a little plant happy at the feed & seed store. Oops. Obviously, we all know about the normal ways to grow plants – from seeds. But, did you know that there are a ton of plants that you can grow from scraps? Plants, that will in turn, produce more food.
You can regrow lemongrass the same way you regrow the green onions. Simply place the root ends in a glass of water, refreshing the water as needed. You will want to wait to harvest your lemongrass until it is about 12 inches tall.
Plant a small chunk off of your piece of ginger in potting soil with the newest buds facing up. Ginger enjoys non-direct sunlight in a warm moist environment. Before long, it will begin to regrow shoots and roots. Once the plant is established and you’re ready to harvest, pull up the whole plant, including the roots. Remove a piece of the ginger, and re-plant it to repeat the growing process.
The best time to harvest ginger is any time after the leaves have died down. Usually it takes eight to ten months to get to that point.

7 ft avocado and a small ugly fruit all from seed I haven't a clue if they will ever produce but its extremely fun trying.
