When you have no electricity, your canned food supply has run out and the grocery store shelves have been emptied; having a garden could save a starving stomach. Knowing how to start this life saving garden would be the first step. If you are in a situation where you can not get any seeds to plant, the next best thing is to re-plant the tops, bits, pits and seeds of already eaten fruits and vegetables. While most people don’t think of doing this, its a really cost effective way of beginning your garden. If you really get into it their are other components that can aid in the development of your patch of paradise, for example a compost bin would provide you with plenty of fertilizer and a place to throw your wasted food, but that is a whole other story. To start lets take a look at what fruits and vegetables can be re-planted.

Now that I have given you a list of all these foods, you may be asking How do I Re-Plant These Fruits and Vegetables. To start the re-growth process mainly consists of a glass bowl and water, the fruit or vegetable you desire and a bit of sun or if you are re-planting from seeds, some nice fertile soil will do the trick. Once you have planted them into a well lit soil plot make sure to keep up with a watering schedule and grooming, peeling off the dead leaves.
