Packing up for CAMP! I’m so excited! Borage is so excited! I’ve got all my stuff packed, except my bag of music books and my travel Kala. I’ve left enough room for her instruments (between us we’ll have two guitars, three  ukes, one mandolin, one fiddle, a harmonica, a tin whistle, and anything else we throw in at the last minute). An entire week at CAMP! For GROWN-UPS! An entire week where we do nothing play guitar and ukulele and sing our hearts out in the beautiful tall woods of the Pacific Northwest! An entire week wherein I turn 40 years old and get sung to by a bunch of nice strangers with excellent guitar skills who can (and likely do) harmonize in their sleep! I AM ECSTATIC! :D 

Okay NOW I want to grow my hair back out.

8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.


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.


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.


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. 


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.


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.


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.

Nice summation of my average morning. 

I love these people so much. I met the family who runs this facility at VegFest Portland two years ago. I gave them money, but it doesn’t seem like nearly enough. They have incredible hearts.
