Growing Things…

So, I kept seeing these pictures online saying you could grow things from kitchen scraps.  Being the person I am, I had to try it.  For the sake of saving everyone I know some trouble if it didn’t work, of course.  I tried romaine hearts, celery and onion.  Here’s the update:

In other news, I have a few tomato plants and some strawberry hanging baskets.  I read about strawberries doing well in hanging baskets, but I don’t think I’ll do it again next year.  They get so dry!  At least in the ground they could look for water if I’m not around to water them.  And of course, a little rose bush.
