This is just a quick update to my kitchen scrap gardening experiment.
I wanted to see if a carrot would regrow from a carrot top if it were placed in potting soil. I put the potting soil in a newspaper pot to ease the transplant shock from eventually moving it out into the garden and contained the whole thing in a soda bottle greenhouse to keep it moist. I set it on a sunny windowsill and waited.
I don't think, now, that this is the best way to grow carrots. While there are some leaves beginning to emerge from the carrot, there are no roots and the the whole thing look and smells bad. I suspect that the greenhouse is at fault, keeping everything a little too moist.
Time to try something new.
