Greens from Root Tops

This is a great beginning gardener or "kid project."  After you rinse off a root, cut the top (stem end) at the shoulders, place in a low dish of water in a sunny window and after a few days, the green tops start.

This works for just about every root - although we aren't partial to carrot tops - beets, turnips, celeriac, rutabagas.  I pick the greens and then usually there is at least one more crop from the energy from the piece of root.
