Perhaps you are one of those folks who tosses the potato when it starts sprouting without even thinking about it.  The fact is that the potato knows that it is time for it to reproduce.  It is actually letting you know that you could benefit even more from the investment you made when you tossed it in your shopping cart.  

Listed below are some tips on how to grow from some regulars we all know.  But for full representation and great ideas, pick up a copy of Grow it, Don’t Throw It!: 68 Windowsill Plants from Kitchen Scraps by Deborah Peterson. She walks you through all the specifics of growing 68 different things from your kitchen supplies. The book is packed with tons of helpful information!
