Regrow food from scraps? I used to think that there was NO way I could regrow food from scraps, but it’s actually surprisingly easy! Use my method to regrow food in your own kitchen!
Take the bottom of a heart of lettuce and put it in a container with about ½ inch of water. Make sure to keep it in sunlight and switch the water every other day or so. Continue until the lettuce begins to sprout!
