    I’m sure you throw garlic away once the bulbs sprout. The same with potatoes that wrinkle and ginger that has been left for too long in the fridge.

    I’m sure there are many more products that you get rid of once they transform. However, many of the fruit and vegetables can be grown again. Instead of throwing them away look at the list below and, who knows, maybe soon you won’t buy vegetables anymore. You will pick them in your own garden!
