Me too. I just made leek and potato soup. I am going to dig out the ends and see if they will play. If you can regrow green onion, leeks should work too. They even had the beginnings of roots on the ends.

This is really making me think - what other veggies could be restarted in this manner?

I grow pineapple. Just use the top, trim and soak it until roots form, then plant it. The pineapple will make a new pineapple in three years.

Three years for a pineapple? Thanx - my baby pineapple plant has been happily thriving since early fall. I knew it would be at least 18 months before I saw pineapplets but yours is a more firm answer.

The trick is to keep 'em coming. I have 3 year old pineapples, 2 year olds, 1 year olds, and newborns. lol

SD wants a pineapple & they're on sale for a dollar. Time to start #2, then.

on sale for a dollar. ? Whooo!,, whoo horsey woo!


Now I was really surprised to learn that Jack Daniels was less expensive in Hawaii than
it is here in Tennessee. But truly,, and I might be wrong but, I don't think anyone
can buy a Pineapple even in Hawaii for a dollar.

I can't recall exactly where you're at FB (I do have clue) but I'm thinking you're growing them outside. Or are you growing them indoors?

A stone's throw north of Tampa, FL, DBA. Winters are usually 60-70's during the day, 40-50's at night. We usually have a few nights when a cold snap comes through an it dips into the 20's in the wee hours of the morning. I just bring the plants inside or cover them up. Pineapple can be used an ornamental plant around here. People plant it around their foundation and it sends out little babies that will grow pineapples too.

People use Spanish Bayonet under windows. More effective than pineapple. Even if you toss a blanket on top the spikes go right through the material.

Potatoes, yams, and avocado will grow a new plant. You can often use seeds from supermarket vegetables. Tomatoes, peppers and melons will usually grow from saved seed but if hybrids will probably produce like a parent plant, not the supermarket variety. Most dried beans will grow. Birdseed will grow too - millet, sunflower. Amazon has a book, "The After-Dinner Gardening Book" that tells you which plants are likely to grow and how to save the seed: Amazon

Oh, I just learned something cool. You can grow sugar cane!

I picked up a piece at our local asian market this weekend, just for fun. I cut it up into long strips and use it in flavored ice tea. But apparently it is very easy to grow in a pot, too. The instructions are here: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/family/...-for-kids1.htm

We've got some bunching onions and leeks growing thanks to your suggestion. Their just in a bowl with a little water right now but as soon as the weather breaks out to the garden they go!
