Growing Indoor Plants Using Kitchen Scraps

indoor plants

You won’t believe what I have been working on…

indoor plants

I have been inspired by the book,

Don’t Throw It, Grow It! 68 Windowsill Plants from Kitchen Scraps

So, I decided to grow indoor plants using a radish, garlic, lentils, a sweet potato vine and green bean seeds.

The object isn’t to grow food itself, but to enjoy the pretty plants that these kitchen scraps will grow.

I’d love it if you would follow along on my Birds & Blooms blog “An Unorthodox Winter Gardening Project”.

I promise to keep you updated on how it is doing 🙂

    Hi Noelle! Confession time…I've spent the past few hours off and on reading through your posts. I found yur blog just by Googleing "Arizona Garden Blogs" and your was the first to come up. I am so glad it did. We just moved into a "new to us" home in Glendale and I really know nothing about gardens and plants but I so want to learn how to take care of our existing plants and possibly start a small vegetable garden. Your blog has been such a huge help and I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to put together such amazing and informative posts. Looking forward to your next entries! Holly at
