Carrots in a Bottle
My buddies and I have grown carrot tops many times. Usually, it's a group project that we do in the winter time. It's easy and inexpensive, and I thought it would be nice for my buddies to have their own carrot project this time. I cut the tops off of some carrots, leaving about an inch or so of top. When we planted, we put them in little bottles that I had cut in half. By also cutting 3 vertical slits up the side of the bottle, it allows the top of the bottle to slide over the bottom half and create a great humid growing environment. We placed them in the window and watched them grow for a couple of weeks. You can usually see growth after just a day or two. My buddies were quite pleased to take their carrots home at the end of this project.
