8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.

Scallions

You can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room.

Garlic

When garlic begins to sprout, you can put them in a glass with a little water and grow garlic sprouts. The sprouts have a mild flavor than garlic and can be added to salads, pasta and other dishes.

Bok Choy

Bok choy can be regrown by placing the root end in water in a well-lit area. In 1-2 weeks , you can transplant it to a pot with soil and grow a full new head.

Carrots

Put carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit room or a window sill.  You’ll have carrot tops to use in salads. 

Basil

Put clippings from basil with 3 to 4-inch stems in a glass of water and place it in direct sunlight. When the roots are about 2 inches long, plant them in pots to and in time it will grow a full basil plant.

Celery

Cut off the base of the celery and place it in a saucer or shallow bowl of warm water in the sun. Leaves will begin to thicken and grow in the middle of the base, then transfer the celery to soil. 

Romaine Lettuce

Put romaine lettuce stumps in a 1/2 inch of water. Re-water to keep water level at 1/2 inch. After a few days, roots and new leaves will appear and you can transplant it into soil.

Cilantro

The stems of cilantro will grown when placed in a glass of water. Once the roots are long enough, plant them in a pot in a well-lit room. You will have a full plant in a few months.

George Steinmetz: Was It Worth Getting Arrested for National Geographic Cover Story Photos? [bottom two]

"Caught in the political crossfire between animal rights activists and agribusiness interests trying to make it illegal to photograph factory farm operations, [Steinmetz] wound up in jail in Kansas while on assignment to shoot the story, called The New Food Revolution.

'It was quite a surprise to me,' says Steinmetz, who is renowned for the beautiful aerial landscapes he shoots all over the world, and who is used to encounters with authorities. ‘I’ve been detained in Iran and Yemen, and questioned about spying, but never arrested. And then I get thrown in jail in America.’

The premise of the May cover story, which kicks off an 8-month series about food, is that crop production will have to double by 2050 in order to feed the growing world population and satisfy its increasing appetite for protein.

But images of US pig, cattle, and chicken farming operations are conspicuously absent from the story, largely because those producers have all but shut out the media.

So Steinmetz ended up photographing meat and egg operations in Brazil, where owners are proud of their state-of-the-art facilities…”

"With his arrest and fingerprints on record, every time he re-enters the US from abroad ‘I get sent to the Group W Bench for questioning,’ he says, referring to the holding place for undesirables in the classic Arlo Guthrie song, Alice’s Restaurant. Stories about Steinmetz’s arrest also continue to pop up near the top of Google search results. ‘The stain lasts even though you’re acquitted.’”

Aerial Views of American Sprawl

By Christoph Gielen

Christoph Gielen’s aerial views offer a look at America’s most aberrant and unusual sprawl forms in ways we usually don’t get to see them: from far above the ground—a vantage point that reveals both the intricate geometry as well as the idiosyncratic allure of these developments.

This Dream Home Only Cost Them $22,000. Just Wait Til You Go Inside..

Andrew and Gabriella Morrison spent decades in the rat race, with their lives revolving around their finances and paying off a huge mortgage. They were sick of this lifestyle, so they boldly downsized and built a tiny house of their own. They call it “hOMe”.
It only cost the Morrisons $22,000 to build their dream home.

They now live mortgage-free, which has improved quality of their life and the closeness of their marriage.

Thanks to brilliant design, this 207 sqft space feels much bigger on the inside. The Morrisons have everything they need.
There’s a spacious kitchen, with an oven, fridge, and sink.
Definitely no lack of counter and shelf space here!
They also included a reading area and an office desk that doubles as a dining table.
Under the stairs to the loft is a big “closet”. Not a single inch is wasted.
Their bedroom fits a queen sized bed and a big dresser.
And on the other side of the loft, a living room where Andrew likes to play his guitar.
Their tiny bathroom has a high tech plumbing system.
And there’s even a shower!

The best part? The house is on wheels, meaning they have no permanent address sand can move whenever.
After touring hOMe, it’s hard to imagine why anyone would need more than this.

Downsizing to a smaller home, especially a tiny house, saves money and lets people focus on more important things in life.
The Morrisons’ home reflects a physical and mental place all of us strive for. They’re free from debts and bills, mind numbing routines, a permanent address, and everything else that prevents us from being the people we want to be. More of us should follow their example - pass their story on to others by clicking below!
