5 Supermarket Vegetables You Can “Upcycle” and Grow At Home
If you dream of growing a few sustainable crops but don’t have garden space, you still can. Start at your local supermarket. Many commercial vegetables can be rooted at home and like in the nature experiments we did in school, they will grow into real food like tomatoes, potatoes, basil, mint and garlic.
Make sure you have an appropriate plant container. A bucket with a few holes drilled in the bottom, a conventional window box, recycled and clean gallon cans, even an old boot for a touch of humor in your garden.
(We once grew geraniums in a recyled – and clean – toilet.) See our post on gardening for food for more ideas. As long as it has drainage holes and good-quality dirt in it, with room enough for new roots, it’s a container and you can grow food in it.
