For additional information and steps to properly care for all of your regrown babies, please check out these resources below! Also, please note that the above steps are mainly your starting point to sprout roots/slips from your vegetable scraps. Once you notice a decent growth, you can transplant the roots or slips to rich soil. Growing it this way will also restore flavor back to the vegetable with nutrients it receives from the soil. Different vegetables may require different types of soil to root properly so we highly recommend doing additional research for each plant you plan to regrow.

I wanna be the very best like no one ever was. Couponing is my real test, to cut them is my cause. I will travel across the land, searching far and wide. Each store to understand, the discounts that's inside.
