    One item that I've grown from leftover scraps is fresh Ginger. It's super easy to regorw, you just slice of a section of ginger rhizome (the rhizome is the really thick knobbly part that you cook with) in potting soil with the smallest buds facing upward.

    You must keep Ginger in lightly filtered, not direct, sunlight in a warm moist environment. I keep it in a windowsill that has a light filtering blind down all the time.

    The plant will establish itself really fast and when you’re ready to harvest, all you have to do is pull up the whole plant, roots and all. Remove a piece of the rhizome, and re-plant it to start all over again!
    Rolling with the Punches, folks, nothing to see here...

    Ok, I haven't seen garlic yet!!
    You can re-grow a plant from just a single clove , all you have to do is just plant it with the fatter root-end down. It's needs well drained soil in lots of sun.
    The garlic will root itself and produce new shoots. After it gets established make sure that you cut back the shoots so the little plant can put all its energy into producing a big fat garlic bulb, otherwise you'll get an anorexic looking garlic bulb. You can replant cloves over and over again too. More free food!

    I use potatoes that are getting old and starting to sprout in my garden. I cut them up and leave at least 2 eyes on each one. They work pretty well.

    I'm not sure if this would count completely but we have been very succesful with regrowing pumpkins for the past several years. About two years ago we bought some pumpkins for the holidays for decorations. As they began to age, and wither away we put them beside the garage instead of the trash. Over the winter the pumpkins continued to deteriate and in the spring we raked the whole pile into a long line. By fall we had pumpkins again for decorating.
