    I need to formally apologize to all readers for the two uses of improper sentence structure in this article. Mistakes were made and all I can do is not make those mistakes again. I will work in the future to increase my diligence in editing and proof-reading. Thank you.

    Dorothy…great article…excited to hear how your garden grows. I just started some organic romaine lettuce in a jar of water in my window inside. Within a day it started growing. So excited to see how it does. http://lifehacker.com/kitchen-scraps-you-can-regrow-with-nothing-but-water-1531011995…check it out. If you google growing food from scraps…it has alot of cool ideas. Mine are in the kitchen window. I also have a pineapple top…it took forever…but has roots now…just need to plant it.

      That’s awesome about your romaine lettuce! I started growing an onion from scraps. Shoots are coming out of the middle. I have kept the jar in the refrigerator because I am pretty clueless. Do I plant it now? I tried to put it out in the sun but it looked like it really dried up. We don’t have big windows and admittedly I am probably the most paranoid person in the world about people looking in. I am looking to make something that I can either wheel outside or make a greenhouse near the window but cover it so people can’t look in. Thanks for the advice about growing food from scraps, but sooner or later you have have to plant them? Am I getting that right? I better buy that soil! Thanks again for the advice!

    Hi Dorothy. Great article. I am curious as to what pet food you buy? I recently took my kitty to the vet and it looks like an allergy but not sure to what, vet thinks prob food. She told me to switch back to food I was feeding him for now, since I had recently switched. Maybe that’s the culprit? I don’t feed my kitties dry kibble but maybe there is a canned food? You know cats can be picky too. Just curious. Thanks.

      Hi Kara! I buy Purina One Tuna and Salmon Flavor. My cat has an allergy to chicken. He lived with an next door neighbor when he was little and let’s just say he didn’t have the best start. My cat is a little “special”. Calmest cat you will ever meet but not too smart. When he was a kitten he started to loose his hair. It got so bad we had to take him to the vet. The vet gave him a steroid shot and told us to experiment with food. The only food he has ever been able to keep down has been Purina One. I have no idea why this is, especially since we bought him organic food, but who am I to argue with a cat’s stomach? I can’t say too much about the canned food since I don’t feed my cats canned, but you really have to experiment with the food. We went through probably about ten different types before we found one his stomach could handle. I really hope this helps!

        Wow, thanks. I switched my cat to a pack food (not canned) due to my fear of BPA’s. Anyway, it was mainly chicken, whereas before they were eating tuna/salmon! Maybe that’s it. So far he’s doing better. He also got a couple of shots at the vet. Thanks for your input!
