Are you thinking about starting a backyard vegetable garden this year? Not all crops have to start from seed. In fact, you can grow vegetables from old produce that’s already in your refrigerator. The base of lettuces, for example, can be placed in a shallow dish of water to re-generate roots. In a few days, that base can be transplanted right into the garden, and it’ll regrow into a whole head of lettuce. Celery, ginger root and fresh herbs can be regenerated this way, too.
