Day 87

I've been trying to be more resourceful lately, both to save money and eliminate waste.  Recently I learned that if you put scallion trimmings (the white bulbous ends) in water, they will hang out pretty much indefinitely, regrowing their tender green shoots which you can simply trim and use. 

I also bought some beautiful local hydroponic lettuce a few weeks ago, and knowing that it was still "living", it seemed incredibly wasteful to simply toss it into the compost bed.  So I threw it in some water too.  Now I have growing scallions and lettuce with a truly lazy amount of effort.

Next I plan on trying the replant celery bottoms (Hee!).  I'll let you know how they get on...
