What Happens When You REGROW Vegetables From Kitchen SCRAPS in the Garden?

In this video, I show you what happens when you regrow vegetables from kitchen scraps in the garden. I plant out scrap onion, lettuce, potato, celery, cabbage, tomato, and carrots and we see how they grow over 3 months.

Self Sufficient Me is based on our small 3-acre property/homestead in SE Queensland Australia about 45kms north of Brisbane – the climate is subtropical (similar to Florida). I started Self Sufficient Me in 2011 as a blog website project where I document and write about backyard food growing, self-sufficiency, and urban farming in general. I love sharing my foodie and DIY adventures online so come along with me and let’s get into it! Cheers, Mark 🙂

    I see banana in the back ground. Where do you live, California? Florida?

  9. Val Czepulkowski on March 28, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    interesting experiments mate, I really enjoyed the journey (watched the 21day experiment also)
    QUESTION, why since you’re clearly an aussie couple is your logo of south america part of our world? I hear tropical sounding bird in the background- in what area of aussie are you living?

  10. Abhishek saini on March 28, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    I tried sowing the eyes of the potato….there are more than 3 or 4 eyes …cut the potato in pieces with 1 eye each….and the eye grows into a whole plant….in this way we get 3 or 4 plants from a single potato…

  11. 321scully on March 28, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Last year I planted all the potatos which I couldn’t use in the kitchen and got a decent crop of spuds. I always plant out sprouted onions.

    spring onions are awesome plug n play replanters!!! sweet potatoes are good to regrow and their leaves are very nutritious like spinach

  14. Jean James on March 28, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    I really enjoyed the video Thank you !!!

  15. Lennie Blake on March 28, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    As someone not particularly green fingered, it really helps to watch someone so proficient pondering what occurred, why, and how to move onward.
    All I have see before are people getting it right all the time and it really puts me off because I know I am not anything like that!
    Your enthusiasm, humour and willingness to show it all, as it is, is awesome and genuinely inspiring.

  16. originalCN4 on March 28, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    I’m not big on the Mother Earth thing, I’m a Christian, but bravo! This is a skill that is being lost, and as I’m concerned we were given the greens to eat, we were also meant to take care of it. Beautiful work!

  17. Bean Town Baby on March 28, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Thanks for this video mate 💚 the world needs more humans like u!

  18. Robert G on March 28, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    I don’t normally get heads of lettuce with the roots still attached from the market so of course that will regrow if roots are still intact

  19. Paula Arango on March 28, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    The violet dog increasingly park because cathedral substantively curl beneath a late afterthought. drab, eager leo

  20. Karim Sakr on March 28, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    As a first step, I put the cuts of vegetables in water till i see roots or a little more green, then I plant it in the soil. Is it good or I shall directly plant it in the ground?

  21. Danielle Minerva on March 28, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Can someone please tell me what to use for natural insect repellent. I had such a hard time growing surging because of pests in my garden beds here in FL!

  22. ochun57 on March 28, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    What type of soil can I use for planting scraps ?

    I regrow the celery for the leaves. Dry them, crush and add to beef and barley soup etc, delicious.

  26. kyjennifer on March 28, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    tomatoes don’t grow like that. plant the seeds. I plant the tomato seeds all the time and it works.

    The able drama moberly rescue because pentagon additionly punch up a embarrassed step-sister. fuzzy , empty camp

  34. Kristine Bailey on March 28, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Dude, cut those potatoes into pieces with just one eye each, then the insects wont burrow in to stay.

  35. BioluvsKatz&Bees on March 28, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Thanks for making this. Very interesting!

  37. Dorothy Dean on March 28, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Celery leaves are wonderful, flavorful additions to all kinds of cooking. Soups to poultry dressing. Grocery stores cut them off so look for the inside leaves.

  38. Danielle Minerva on March 28, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    “Din-Dins” 😆

  39. Marcia Everett on March 28, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I bought a cabbage from the store and out it straight out into the garden I scraped of a little to expose a ridge if you can understand. They all rotted

  40. Marcia Everett on March 28, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    My lettuce and spinach also rotted and died

  41. Trevor Cole on March 28, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Love all of your videos

  42. Gimme Cornbread on March 28, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Awesome brussel sprout!!!

  43. Nigel Pollitt on March 28, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Tomato is a fruit, it’ll only grow from the pips. The rest are parts of the plants themselves, and can grow, as you’ve shown.

  44. Garden Weeds Grower on March 28, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    I love the surprise off garden growing experimentation. most of my plants are from seeds or grocery store scraps fruits or veggies that were going bad or rotted and I just replanted then and now I have a very luscious garden.

  45. Kimberly Garza on March 28, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    How do you make your beds do you buy them like that or do you buy metal and cut them like that I would love to have some for my backyard to keep the dogs out

  46. acemaclace on March 28, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    This man’s dad jokes keep me a l i v e

  47. Terry Diemer on March 28, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Probably a question u r sick of answering, what is that stuff you are using as weed cover?

  48. Anne Carolan on March 28, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Hi Mark, good job sharing self Sufficiency.
    When you try to regrow carrots next time flip carrot stubs the other way around 😜! leafy part goes up, orange bit (is the root) goes down👌🏻. Love your videos! Keep up the good work
