Indoor Plants From Kitchen Scraps: The ‘Towering’ Radish

In January, I shared with you my latest garden experiment; “An Unorthodox Winter Gardening Project”, which entailed growing indoor plants using kitchen scraps like garlic cloves, lentils, carrot tops, a sweet potato and a radish.  I enjoy garden projects – especially ones that you can do indoors during the winter months.

A couple of weeks later, all but one of my kitchen scraps was growing very well and my garden experiment was a success.  You can see how they looked just after 14 days after planting in my post “Indoor Plants From Kitchen Scraps” Success!”

What I was NOT prepared for was how huge one of my kitchen scrap plants would grow.

Here is a collage of what my radish plant looked like for the first 14 days…

Here is what it looks like just 6 weeks after planting…

Look how tall it has gotten!

I must admit that I had no idea that my radish would grow so tall.

The flowers are pretty – small and delicate.

All of my other kitchen scraps are doing well, but none has approached the status of my radish plant :-)

    Wow! How fun! I know you said you panted these just for fun, but will you harvest some seeds from the flowers and try to plant them?
