17 Plants You Can Grow From Leftovers: Greg Curcio, the blogger behing The Black Thumb Gardener, takes composting to the next level. Not only does he save his kitchen scraps and turn them into rich soil for his garden, but he alo grows vegetables from the scraps themselves. In a recent blog post he lists 17 plants with regenerative qualities. The most surprising of the group? Pineapple! Apparently one can take the leafy green top, pull it out of the fruit, peel back a few of the leaves, and place it in a container of warm water. Once it begins to take root, the hopeful gardener should replant it in soil and water it once a week. In two to three years, the plant will grow a fruit fit for even the finest upside-down pineapple cake. More work and a longer process than going to the supermarket, yes, but infinitely more satisfying.
