The End

By N.A. Booko

Pittsboro, NC – The cold days of winter are upon us. We need to stay indoors a lot. Not shop too often. Fight boredom. How many times can you re-work that puzzle with 1,000 pieces?

For those of us that loves gardening, growing and such; there are little things you can do for fun.

The heel (the end) or root part of most vegetables will try and take root, put out top growth if planted in a pot of dirt on the window sill.

Onions, scallions, celery, cabbage, leek, lettuce, all will put up edible green shoots. I’m not saying you will have great amounts, but certainly enough for occasional garnish or nibbling.

Carrots tops are pretty growing, but don’t eat the greens. Because I said so. Common potatoes will sprout, but don’t eat the green tops.

All of those edibles look even better thru a martini glass half full.

Don’t let anyone tell your different. The cocktail glass is either half empty or half fool.
