The consumption of vegetables is very crucial for your health especially the ones that are organic. You can never be sure what are you buying in the grocery shops because most of the products contain pesticides or some other chemicals. You will be always sure that you consume organic veggies if you grow them by yourself.
The markets are packed with genetically modified vegetables; therefore planting them by you makes a lot of sense. Even though this will require extra time and patience, it is worth it, as only then you will be sure of the benefits your veggies will provide you with.
You can try to grow these eight vegetables which for most people are the favorite ones.
Garlic shows a wide range of health benefits, and because of that it is good to have it always available. So, if you see new sprouts from your garlic clove, put the clove in a container with some water in it. Later on you can transfer the sprouted clove in a pot of soil.
You can grow your own scallions by using the older roots of this vegetable. All you have to do is to place an inch long scallion root in a pot of water and then put it in a spot where is enough sunlight. Very soon you will get fresh scallion sprouts.
Grow that crunchy celery by placing the celery bottom in a low bowl and then make sure to find a spot with enough sunlight. In no time you will see new leaves sprouting, and after about 3 days you can transplant your celery into a container filled with soil.
- Romaine Lettuce
For this vegetable, you need to use the bottom end of the lettuce in order to grow a fresh one. Place the stem in a bowl with around half an inch of water. After couple of days you will notice how roots are emerging. When the roots have shown themselves, transfer the lettuce to a pot with soil.

In order to always have fresh basil at your home cut the stem of it about 3-4 inches in length and then place it into water. Change your water often so that there is no slimy basil plant.

Put the cilantro stem in water, and when roots start to appear transplant the plant into a pot of soil. After couple of months you will get a new organic cilantro plant.
