Tuesday Top Ten: Food from Cuttings

IMG_7565

With just a quick perusal of pinterest, you can find hundreds of grow-it-yourself instructions. As I surfed around DIY gardening sites, I quickly realized that some of the projects don’t result in edible food. You can grow beautiful avocado trees or carrot tops, but they won’t make much of a dinner. Here are our top ten edible items that we’re going to try to start from cuttings this year:

  1. Green Onions – from 17 Apart
  2. Ginger Root – from Tropical Permaculture
  3. Garlic – from A Veggie Venture
  4. Sweet Potatoes – from The Garden of Eaden
  5. Celery – from Deep Roots at Home
  6. Rosemary – from Geek Gardener
  7. Basil – from Garden Therapy
  8. Tomato Plants – from Vegetable Gardener
  9. Peppermint – from Mother Earth Living
  10. Lemongrass – from Backyard Gardening Blog

  1. I’m looking forward to checking out these links. I have a book from the library–My Favorite Herb by Laurel Keser. Lots of ideas and recipes.
    I made a cilantro pesto from the Mediterrasian Way cookbook with peanuts, lime, hot pepper, garlic, ginger, fish sauce, peanut oil and a tiny bit of brown sugar and salt. I’m making another batch for the freezer.
