Photo Challenge: I Plant what I Eat

Hello, everyone!

Gardening is a popular hobby. Many of you may have a green thumb, but have you ever tried to plant something from leftover vegetable roots or fruit seeds that was kept from whatever you had eaten? If so, join our challenge! You may like to share any gardening tips with us. Here is a video that demonstrates the way we can give it a try!
Let's get started! Submit your own photo and name it "Photo Challenge: I Plant what I Eat." Or, name it "I Eat what I Plant ". In this way, show us your harvest!

This avocado tree has been planted since I ate the fruit 3 months ago. I hope to move it to my friend's farm after some time as I don't think it would be happy to live in my balcony for too long. :D

@AG  With my pleasure! It's still ok to try even living in a flat as long as you have a suitable place and a flowerpot like Mary's. hahaa..   Don't forget to share whenever you have tried to plant. Thank you. :)

@Mary  Well, it depends. Maybe after 6-7 years if you wanna see the first fruit from the this tree. But before that it should be strong enough to live with me who has a brown fingers. :P

Mary, your entry is very impressive! I hope our members could take a look at what you "plant".

Thank you for being with us. :)

New photo challenge, hooray! ^_^

Your avocado tree is already very big for being just a 3 months old! I wonder how much you'll have to wait to eat its first avocado... I hope you can share a pic of that moment too ;)

Thanks for sharing your pic with us and for bringing a new cool photo challenge! ^_^

@Kal   Yes, avocado is considered a rich nutrient fruit. I like its taste. It's my second time to plant. My first avocado was moved to my friend's farm, I think they need more space to grow. Thanks Kal for liking the challenge. It'd be great to have your participation in the activity. Have a nice day! :)

Dear Grace,

Very interesting challenge again from you. Happy to hear it.

Avocado trees have around me. But they become very big soon. Sometimes you will have to plant it in your garden.

However, it's so creamy and very nutrient fruit. Especially it is more helpful to grow children and thin persons.

Also, I'd like to participate your great challenge. Thanks, dear!

@Onee   Yes, I also never saw both of these ways until I came across the related information. Eating veg or fruits from our garden would be more safe at least we know how we plant. Your entries are impressive I love all of them! Thank you for sharing! :)

@Ada. Thanks for liking the challenge! It's easy to plant avocado at home. All you need to do is to eat an avocado and then prepare 3 toothpicks to put like below on water. You would find something coming out from the seed after some time. Move it to soil once it grows more roots.

Wow! You managed to grow avocado? 


Thanks for sharing! I love this challenge!

I've never seen both pineapple and avocado plants. :D

Thank you for sharing, Grace. I think I've already posted some fruits around my place. But, let me see again. :))

Great challenge! ^^

@Rahul   It's an avocado tree! Thanks for dropping by.

@Rosemary  would you like to try it? I've learned a lot from that video and are growing pineapple that I just ate a couple of days ago. It's quite enjoyable to see them growing some little roots so far. :)

 Nice idea but unfortunately  I can't do it
