One last hoorah for National Fruit and Vegetable Month. Did you know that you can re-grow vegetables from their scraps? You can grow a carrot from a carrot by following these simple steps:
- Reserve the top of a carrot once you’ve used it.
- Place it in water.
- Watch green leaves sprout at the top.
- Plant the sprouts in soil once roots develop (or display it for your children to learn and discover how carrots can grow).
Children will love to see the carrot grow and sprout roots. You can do this with other vegetables too, like celery, potatoes, sweet potatoes, lettuce, and more! Have fun watching the amazing life cycle of a plant with your children!
