Do you save other things besides scraps?

This was the top of my fresh pineapple. I like to save them and plant them 
My Dad has one in the house that he got a pineapple on. A tiny one but still.....

I had one I put in my garden last year
It was dark green and pretty
But then the cold came and killed it.

You can grow veggie scraps too.
Potato eyes planted become potato plants
Carrot tops with greens become more carrots

Just ask this ole farmgirl
Save those eggshells too and coffee grounds to fertilize. Yep and banana peels too.

See? All kinds of scraps are fun

I've never tried a pineapple top--but I've grown avocado pits into lovely leafy plants--
no avocados sadly...With the pinapple --do you have to dry them out before
planting? And how low do you cut them--I'd like to try that one...hugs, Julierose

Cut top off about half inch to an inch from top. Dry a day.i usually just plant in soil that i keep moist till it can preroot in water too said...

I did celery once from the base. Never pineapple though. I need to get my shelf up in front of my window and plant some fresh herbs though.
