I'm embarrassed to say that I haven't actually tried any of these projects, yet. I too fall guilty to collecting things on Pinterest for "future reference." But I'm hoping to get my act together soon! Perhaps you'll join me?

According to The Burlap Bag, (and many other sites) you can regrow celery by planting the base. Simply bury the base in a 3-4 inch hole and wait. The above picture shows what it might look like two weeks after planting.

It's just as easy to grow garlic, too. According to Soap Deli News, one clove can yield an additional twenty cloves. Just plant a single clove pointy side up, water and wait. The garlic will sprout leaves and you'll know it's ready to be harvested when the leaves turn brown. Allow the bulb to dry for about a week and that's it!
