Gardening is fun. Those vegetables freshly picked right from your garden whenever you need them are much much better than those you bought from your local grocery a week ago.
Even better, some vegetables can regrow magically. You don’t really need any seeds. You can just save your kitchen scraps and plant them, and they will grow vigorously, saving you costs of buying the plants.
Even you don’t have a garden or big space, you can regrow some of them just in a jar of water. How amazing they are! Here are just some of those amazing vegetables that can regrow magically.
