Give Your Used Vegetables a Second Life
Food waste seems to be a popular topic these days and there’s good reason. The USDA produced some shocking statistics in 2010, they estimated that there were 430 billion pounds of food product wasted. A fifth of this comes from personal household trash.
I don’t know about you but food shopping can be very expensive. While it may be unlikely that you can completely eliminate your grocery bill, you can definitely reduce the amount you’re spending at the till as well as save some trips to the farmer’s market by growing certain foods yourself. You can do this by growing them from scraps that you would normally throw away. Win, win!
Just make sure you use fresh scraps and remember to pay attention to your baby future plant, making sure it has the water and light it needs
